Syfte och mål
The overall purpose of KIC FoodBest II was to focus on the overall process and project management for a successful FoodBest application for a Food KIC (decided by the EU in September 2013) and concept development of Education activities according to the Knowledge Triangle. This has been successfully fulfilled. Industry, Educational institutions and other public institutions have participated in creating content and suggesting concrete activities relevant for the educational part of a Foodbest KIC application.
Resultat och förväntade effekter
The project has created better knowledge and understanding of both the need for relevant education element in the KIC and insight into how to design its implementation. The project has extended the degree of understanding between universities and industry regarding needed human resourcesespecially the need for the Food Sector to attract talents. We have identified some business need and challenges. And the project has led to the design of targeted KIC actions. The effects are a high degree of influence on the European Foodbest KIC scope and new awareness at regional level.
Upplägg och genomförande
The project has met the objectives and intentions and created new input for educational activities. A few issues came up in the process. It was not possible within the time and budget limits of the project to do a test of ideas for courses developed. These have been further developed in an ongoing project and will be realized in 2015. The whole process proved to be very valuable to Foodbest DK/SE and our partners. Most of our suggestions have been transferred in full to the European set-up securing that the needs of our industry and institutions are included in the Foodbest KIC Bid.
