Students who are passionate about sustainable food and about working in a cooperative international environment, this is for you! Call for Student Applications is Open.
Teams of Master’s students from around the world are invited to address the following question in this 2020 Edition of the ISEKI-Food International Student Competition Game:
How can food biodiversity in your country be valorized?
Teams of 3 to 5 Master’s students registered in food-related programmes anywhere in the world can apply for the competition. Applications require a project title and a description of the problem/solution that the project will address. Applications are available here.
The deadline for application submission is 30 SEPTEMBER 2020.
The competition opens in October 2020 and accepted teams attend 6 on-line training sessions over the next 4 months. In mid-February 2021, the competition ends with a Virtual Conference where all teams present their projects and the winners are announced. Among the prizes for the winning team are a guaranteed presentation at an international conference to present the winning project!
Participation in the competition will improve practical ability in identifying and solving real problems in sustainable food production / processing and give action-learning experience to students as they work together on skills that are essential for today’s job market. All student participants will benefit.
This competition is the 3rd “Sustainable Supply Chain” competition of the ISEKI-Food Association, through its affiliate European FooD-STA and under the umbrella of the FoodFactory-4-Us competitions.
