FoSaMed – Enhancing Food Safety in the Mediterranean

The FoSaMed project has just completed its first face-to-face training at the Campus de l’Alimentació de Torribera, University of Barcelona, held from July 18 to 22. Partners have now moved to Portugal, where the University of Évora is hosting the second face-to-face training from July 25 to 29.

According to the needs assessed and the feedback on the studying of the individual online materials, about 30 Moroccan teachers from the four partner institutions of the project (Institut Agronomique et Vétérinaire Hassan-II, Université IBN Tofail, Ecole Nationale D’Agriculture de Meknes and Université Mohammed Premier – Oujda) exchanged their teaching and learning methodologies and upgraded their technical skills through on-site lessons and lab activities with EU colleagues, from both UEVORA and UB.

Indeed, the main objective of this task is to build capacities, to improve scientific and technical knowledge and to be able to transfer it to the labor market.

Partners have now moved to Portugal, where the University of Évora is hosting the second face-to-face training from July 25 to 29. The activity aims at the acquisition of new teaching methodologies and the improvement of pedagogical techniques in laboratory context, specifically in the area of food safety. The acquired skills will be subsequently applied within the framework of the implementation of a new Master in Food Safety that will start next academic year, in Moroccan universities.
