Fostering Academia Industry Collaboration in Food Safety & Quality (FOODQA)

 

The FoodQA project aims at reinforcing and structuring a Jordanian network for promoting entrepreneurship and innovation in the food area, while improving the flow of knowledge and cooperation between HEI and industry.

To achieve this ambitious goal, the consortium identified a set of activities to be carried out through the creation of the FoodQA centers. These activities will lead to key changes in teaching and learning approaches and will build strong & durable bridges between academia and industry.

The FoodQA project will allow:

  • To specify the needs in food companies in order to better shape training courses and encourage close interactions of authorities with the concerned companies.
  • To develop a professional and complete approach that will federate experts of several disciplines to support the best projects and allow their transfer within a food company partner of the project or in HEIs’ incubator by the setting of FoodQA centers, training of academia and industry, the establishment of the Academia-Industry Council, piloting the implementation of food safety and quality management systems.
  • To analyse and address the skills and needs of food companies in order to propose new training sessions (some in common with students) thus enhancing and normalizing interactions.
  • To revise and develop new training courses for all stakeholders.
