The flagship Master in Food Systems programme is EIT Food’s unique offering to develop top talent for the food sector. The programme is based on a combination of essential skills to become effective innovators and entrepreneurs in the food sector along with key technical skills that are tailored to the individual career pathway for each student. The programme will be finalised in the first half of 2019, and a first intake of 90 students is expected in September 2019. The Masters in Food Systems programme is fundamentally distinct from what any of the KIC Universities are offering at the moment, and indeed unique for the sector and beyond. The programme is based on a T-model approach, where broad competences regarding food systems knowledge and innovation and entrepreneurship are combined with in-depth technical skills as specified by industry.
For the first student intake in fall 2019, six academic partners (University of Hohenheim, University of Turin, University of Warsaw, Autonomous University of Madrid, Queen’s University of Belfast & University of Reading) will offer individually profiled semester tracks.
