Knowledge triangle for food innovation by harnessing the tradition and assuring sustainability
Start date: Sep 1, 2016, End date: Feb 28, 2019 PROJECT  FINISHED 

European education system is facing reinventing education. There is a new imperative to add innovation in education, based on using digital and online media combined with practical work to obtain skills. Another challenge for Europe is to reinvent the notion of industrial innovation by coupling the three components of the Knowledge Triangle: the HIGH EDUCATION as knowledge producer, the academic RESEARCH as creativity source, and BUSINESS, with its entrepreneurial spirit. Europe is facing, also, with the loss of its cultural and material identity, inclusive the culture of traditional foods and the endangerment of the sustainable food resources. This project is offering a solution for these three European challenges. In a new educational approach, students will solve tasks given by industry by developing new sustainable foods based on traditional ones. The needed knowledge will be systematised by the researcher. The acquiring and enriching of this knowledge by the students will be facilitate by the teacher in blended training sessions. Their innovative skills will be perfected in the practical product development sessions. Positive attitudes relative own development and future job will be enhanced by the appreciation of the industry at the final product contest that will judge the products. This complex educational process will be possible only trough a web platform that: will bring together all participants; will allow collaborative knowledge creation (Knowledge bases) and assimilation (e-Learning material); will guide the innovative development process; will record the whole learning experience for inspiration and dissemination.
