EuroMicropH and the Department of Chemistry of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (Athens, Greece) are organizing a 3 days-long training school on “Modelling the effects of low pH and other stresses on food-borne micro-organisms to improve food and drink quality”.
The training school will bring together teaching and industrial staff currently working on different aspects of modelling for simulation and optimisation of the quality, safety of food products, with a special focus on high acid products.
The theoretical lectures will cover all the fundamentals and basic principles of predictive modelling.
The practical activities will include the use of pedagogical tools for Project-Based Learning (PBL) in which trainees will work in groups to solve realistic multifaceted problems with the use of computer programming software.
- understanding of the substantial body of applied modelling, statistics and its recent developments in the field of Food Science
- application of principle concepts in the theory and practice of empirical and theoretical modelling for quantifying responses in food acidic environments
- develop autonomous initiatives in problem-based studies of complex food systems
- multi-sectorial competences that will help on their future employability.
