In the frame of the 5th ISEKI_Food Conference the "IFA-SIG “EDUCATION” is organizing a free workshop together with the GHI EDUCATION GROUP. The objective of the workshop is to further develop the collaboration between GHI and IFA. Three possible areas are looked:

  1. Training materials
  2. Research
  3. Academic Books


The workshop will be organised with a main presentation proposing collaboration, followed by group table discussions. Those will be reported back to the group and a small number of conclusions will be outlined by the organisers of the workshop and will be communicated to the attendants so that further collaboration can be guided.
