Network of Universities and Enterprises for Food Training in Southeast AsiaNutriSEA is funded under Key Action 2 “Capacity Building in Higher Education” of the European Commission’s Erasmus + programme.
Project Duration: 15/10/2015 – 14/10/2018
A consortium of 14 partner institutions from Europe and Southeast Asia, led by Ghent University and the Royal University of Agriculture implements the NutriSEA project: "Network of Universities and Enterprises for Food Training in Southeast Asia". It focusses on food-related curriculum development, the cooperation with enterprises via Technology Transfer Offices and strengthening internationalisation at partner universities in Cambodia, Vietnam and Myanmar. The long-term goal is to set up a regional food network with stakeholders from academia, business and authorities.
Göttingen International, the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences (Chair of Agricultural Policy) and CBL jointly work in the project.
A SWOT analysis of the existing Asian curricula and a review of the relevant EU curricula was the baseline for the development of teaching, learning and assessment material to train academics, international relations officers and tech transfer officers in Asia and Europe.
