EIT Food and UniTO on Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs)

The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) brings together leading higher education institutions, research labs and companies to form dynamic cross-border partnerships - Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) - that develop innovative products and services, start new companies and train a new generation of entrepreneurs.

 

EIT Food’s online courses are open to all, aimed at anybody interested in learning more about the food system and can mostly be accessed for free. Expand your mind and learn more about food, such as where it comes from and how it affects human health.

 

Most of EIT Food’s courses deal with current topics you might already have an interest in or know something about. EIT Food’s MOOCs are interested in your views, and as part of the course, you will be invited to join the conversation, sharing your ideas on transforming the food sector to be more sustainable and creating a healthier society.
