+ FOODLAB : Sharing of knowledge between the academic and business worlds

With Foodlab young people must learn to be enterprising!
Foodlab point of view : Creating businesses is the most important source of new jobs.

Europe is committed to further stimulate entrepreneurship and encourage an entrepreneurial culture early in the education system. The Foodlab Project is a European initiative. Foodlab is dedicated to the development of a new learning and teaching methodology and the related tools to improve the transversal competences of students and develop entrepreneurship. In order to tackle these issues, the Foodlab consortium is composed of 15 partners from 6 different countries (France, Hungary, Italy, Slovenia, Czech Republic and Spain). The objective of the Foodlab consortium is to share knowledge covering all research, development and production activities towards the delivery of new courses. The Foodlab European Food Business Transfer Laboratory, supported by a Foodlab web-platform, will allow fostering interactions between students and stakeholders in food innovation to improve entrepreneurship in this sector.
