CASEE Summer School 2017

“Ethics, Quantity and Quality Assurance in Agriculture, Food Production and Food Technology”

will be held at the University of Novi Sad, Faculty of Agriculture from 3 July until 12 July 2017.

The Summer School will be organized in the framework and with the partner institutions of the Joint Master's Degree Programme in Sustainable Agriculture, Food Production and Food Technology in the Danube Region.

The main focus of the course will be on self-development in a multicultural European region through interactive exercises and discussion. The Summer School will include courses on quantity and quality assurance in traditional and organic agriculture and food production and food technologies. Courses related to intercultural and ethical aspects of food production and consumption - societal challenges related to GMO, role of media in food and health perception, ethical challenges of recreational fishing - will also be included. Field trips to traditional and organic farms will provide further insight to advantages and disadvantages of both approaches and will widen the students' understanding of practical problems in the field of ethics, quantity and quality assurance in agriculture and food production. This approach can also help students in finding solutions and reveal opportunities in their academic and future professional life.

The target group for attending the winter school were final year undergraduate students and graduate and postgraduate students from life science disciplines. The main aim of the winter school was to improve the mobility of students and multilateral cooperation between higher education institutions in the Danube region on the development of agriculture, food production and technology and sustainable development with an emphasis on biotechnology.

Besides an intercultural student group also the lecturers come from different partner universities in several European countries. Upon successful completion of the winter school participants have earned 4 ECTS credits.
