FOODBIZ

FOODBIZ aims at promoting acquisition of relevant skills and competences related to employability in higher education students through their active involvement in community learning activities. FOODBIZ supports then innovation and creativity of students and all players involved through regional partnership: the project aims at promoting co-creation of knowledge between students, business players, researchers/universities, other stakeholders concerned, and policy makers for local development in the field of agri-food and food tourism. This will allow them to:

•   Learn in context

•   Establish links with enterprises and other stakeholders of the territory to which the university belongs

•   Understand the economic strengths and opportunities of the territory in relation to agri-food and food tourism

•   Reflect about their own competences, motivations, and ambitions

•   Contribute to community development and job creation

•   Contribute to community development and job creation

The project aims at implementing an action where the students are active in the community to which their belong during the study years, bringing into the university the knowledge of the community and vice-versa, and co-creating with other players, as peer, new knowledge and innovation. The key element of the project is therefore the concept of co-creation, which takes place when all the subjects involved establish a dialogue, reciprocal understanding and common goals.
