Enhancing Food Safety
in the Mediterranean
What FoSaMed aims to do
The main goal of the FoSaMed project is the implementation of a new joint Master’s programme on food safety.
FoSaMed brings together 4 Moroccan Higher Education institutions and 3 European partners promoting inclusive education through curriculum development and teacher education on food safety.
The objectives of the FoSaMed project include to qualify Moroccan academics for modern and innovative teaching methodologies, to support Moroccan HEIs in designing a Master Programme on food safety associated to the recovery and promotion of the traditional Mediterranean diet and to short food supply chains, and to contribute to inclusive higher education, which integrates underprivileged groups, such as women, rural populations and refugees and gives them equal access to knowledge and the opportunities it brings.
