EIT Food and UniTO on advanced education

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 programmes for advanced education aim to help you become part of a highly-qualified, innovative, entrepreneurial, integrated and resilient European food system workforce. Develop new skills and keep up-to-date with our programmes directed at students and professionals at all stages of their career in the food system.


All programmes are innovative, multidisciplinary, challenge-based and practical. Specifically, they develop core competences in the areas of Food Systems, Digital literacy, Technology management, Problem-solving, Critical thinking, Leadership and Management, Entrepreneurship and Communication.
