Course content

This course is fully supported by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) with the aim of addressing key issues relating to agri-food security, sustainability and integrity of the food supply chain. The training on this course will focus on areas where research and innovation have significant potential to address future societal challenges for food security.

This course is unique in the UK and is fully supported by the BBSRC Modular Training Programme.

The three modules represent the subject areas identified by market research work with industrial food supply chain industries. Furthermore, the subject areas are interrelated, and have common themes such as the application of nanotechnology. This will provide a comprehensive platform for improved industrial performance and an opportunity to obtain a recognised academic qualification.

The transferability of the academic credit will allow for further upskilling and postgraduate qualifications to be achieved.
