Project Summary

The overall objective of the FOODI project is to enhance the institutional capacity of 10 HEI in Malaysia, Cambodia and Thailand by developing a new innovative MS Programme in Food Processing & Innovation. The purpose of the MSc Programme in Food Processing & Innovation is to educate aspiring food entrepreneurs, healthcare professionals, government officials, and food industry professionals in the end-to-end value chain of food processing: from understanding the elements of food, to starting a new venture for disrupting and enriching the food processing industry in Asia.

The overarching goal is to enable Programme participants to apply, develop and communicate knowledge in the cross-field between food, health and innovation. To do so, they will be educated in innovation, entrepreneurship, food science and engineering, and elements of social science.

Also, beyond coursework, the program will be structured around:
a) industry placement, in relevant businesses, government agencies, etc.;
b) digital learning, to allow modern forms of learning, as well as to enable contribution from experts across the globe in the development of the program;
c) promote cooperation, exchange of know-how and good practices in the subject area between EU and PC HEIs;
d) establish viable synergies and links with the regional food industry in order to address their needs in specialized personnel, and enhance the employability of FOODI graduates;
e) contribute to local economic growth, by providing to program participants the right knowledge/skills/tools to turn the local food processing sector into a driver of social and economic growth.
