The prospective participants are trainees in Public VOCATIONAL TRAINING INSTITUTE OF PIRAEUS–IEK ILIOUPOLIS, in the fields of specialization "Culinary Art Technician" comprising four classes. Their age is from 18 to 40 years old and the group is mixed, comprising men and women.Although their initial vocational training is four semesters , they have the opportunity to come into contact with innovative cooking techniques and in particular with the Molecular Gastronomy , which are not taught in any educational organization in Greece every level, not only to students but also in the professional industry, which degrades the quality of education provided to prospective Chef, highlighting the weakness of the Greek educational system to monitor the latest technological developments . Many of them are workers who have not acquired specific skills and abilities, have limited experience, professional consciousness and behavior. They are not aware of the need of "lifelong education ", most go for the first time overseas and need to improve their skills in a foreign language. Specific expertise and applications of Molecular Gastronomy are skills that only some professional Chefs possess and share only sparingly with their own colleagues. The basic need to implement this program is mobility among other things, and the coverage of gaps in learning the new curriculum of the Ministry of Education.As there was great interest in the program and in order not to exclude many, we decided that the participants in the project, after selection, would forty eight ( 48 ) trainees in total in three flows with 16 trainees each: the first flow in the Spanish organization Global Skills Network (ES) in Barcelona 13-26 November 2016, the second flow in the Italian host organization CO.EUR. - European Consulting and Training Association ( IT ) in Rome and Ascoli 15-25 Fabruary 2017 and the third flow in the same partner CO.EUR from 7 to 20 of May 2017.
