Innovative Education towards the Needs of the Organic Sector
Start date: Sep 1, 2014, End date: Nov 30, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Project title: ‘Innovative Education towards the Needs of the Organic Sector’ Development and implementation of innovative, labour market relevant teaching approaches in higher education institutions can enhance the quality of education and, in perspective, improve students’ employability. One of the sectors of the European market characterized by dynamic growth, but still hardly supported by well-educated and skilled quality experts, is organic food sector. Therefore, Strategic Partnership will support cooperation between seven European universities to develop, test and implement innovative educational materials and methods addressing the needs of the labour market in organic sector and beyond. The project will begin with an in-depth analysis of labour market needs, both organic sector-specific and general, followed by the development of innovative teaching contents and by testing them with students and lecturers during teaching/learning activities, including e-learning, Intensive Study Programme and students internships. The final result will be the joint curriculum, to be implemented into regular teaching programme of the partner universities as well as disseminated to higher education institutions beyond the partnership.
