The ASKFOOD project, an ERASMUS+ Knowledge Alliance project
(www.askfood.eu), has various objectives that revolve around innovation.
Among these is the creation of digital or "virtual tools" to encourage,
improve and modernize training and education methodologies in the world
of food technologies and adjacent fields. In view of this project, ASKFOOD
has developed a virtual tool named Smart Atlas, which is built on a series
of resources (MOOCs, research centers, results of European projects, training centers, acceleration
programs, crowdfunding, startups and innovation marketplaces that act as a platform for the
exchange of innovation).
The tool is useful for sharing your best practice or products, or to browse what others in the food
and food-related sector are sharing and create your network.
The Smart Atlas operates at an EU and International level, and information is available for operators
or interested persons with the aim of promoting, mapping and tracing every initiative and good
practice that operates towards innovation.
To enter and navigate the Smart Atlas, follow the link: https://www.askfood.eu/tools/smart-atlas/
Any person, institution, organization or association willing to contribute their good practices or
initiatives in the Smart Atlas can do so by following the link:

ASKFOOD is an ERASMUS+ Knowledge Alliance project (www.askfood.eu)
aimed to create a permanent knowledge alliance between businesses and
Higher Education Institutions in the food-related sectors and a new
«educational» eco-system for innovation and sustainability of the food
system. Within the project, activities aimed to evaluate the status of
innovative teaching methodologies and implement new teaching
methodologies to develop entrepreneurial skills and competences in students of food-related study
programs have been planned and some are currently under testing.
The general name “Garage” and related declinations (“Garage entrepreneur”, “Start-Up Garage”,
“Garage Lab”) refers to a series of training programs and approaches aimed at students who want to
develop their entrepreneurial skills in an interactive and guided environment (in general, within
academia or related incubators or spin-offs). In some countries, they could have other names like the
Startup Sauna (Finland), StartHub (Wageningen Uni. & Res) and Contamination Labs (Italy). A “Garage”
is, in general, a community and physical space for students interested in entrepreneurship to
experience first-hand the grit and resilience it takes to start and grow a company. By the guidance of
teachers or mentors, students learn skills like co-creation, leadership, networking, and building a
team, and get a “hands-on” experience from formulating a business idea up to creating a first pitch.
The ASKFOOD project is launching a survey at the EU and international level to collect information
on existing university “Garage” lab experiences, evaluate communalities in the methodologies,
applied best practices and assessment tools. Results will be used to compare the experiences with
other innovative entrepreneurial training methodologies currently under piloting in the ASKFOOD
project.

For more information about the ASKFOOD project and activities, please contact the Scientific
Coordinator of the project, Professor Paola Pittia of the University of Teramo at (ppittia@unite.it).

Bildung ist der Schlüssel - auch im Lebensmittelbereich

Die "Alliance for Skills and Knowledge to Widen Food-Sector-Related Open Innovation, Optimisation and Development", kurz ASKFOOD, verfolgt das Ziel, höhere Bildung im Bereich der Lebensmitteltechnologie auf den neuesten wissenschaftlichen und technologischen Stand zu bringen und damit für die Herausforderungen der Branche zu rüsten. Das ACR-Institut LVA ist mit dabei. Nach etwas mehr als einem Jahr Laufzeit konnten bereits zahlreiche Maßnahmen umgesetzt werden.

ASKFOOD ist als nachhaltiges Projekt angedacht und wird ein Informationsanbieter sein, der Clustern und Netzwerken, die sich mit Aus- und Weiterbildung befassen, bei der Erstellung ihrer Businesspläne unterstützt. Dieses Projekt wird von Erasmus+ der Europäischen Union kofinanziert.

Der ASKFOOD Smart Atlas

Im Zeitalter des virtuellen Informationsaustausches stehen bereits Ressourcen zur Verfügung, die den Erwerb an zusätzlichen Kompetenzen im Lebensmittelsektor ermöglichen. Um dieses vorhandene Wissen zugänglich zu machen, wurde der ASKFOOD Smart Atlas entwickelt. Das Tool aggregiert bestehende Systeme aus acht verschiedenen Sektoren: offene Massen-Online-Kurse (MOOCs), Trainingszentren, EU-Projekt-Ergebnisse,  Forschungszentren, Accelerator-Programme, Crowdfunding-/ Crowdsourcing-Plattformen,  Start-Ups und Innovationsbörsen. Der Smart Atlas ist als Plattform für unterschiedlichste Benutzerprofile gedacht und dient der Inspiration und zum Selbststudium. Gleichzeitig soll er den Wissenstransfer intensivieren. Testen Sie den Smart Atlas unter: https://www.askfood.eu/tools/smart-atlas/maps/

Der Forecast Aggregator

Um Trends zu erkennen, die die Anforderungen an zukünftige Berufsbilder im Lebensmittelsektor beeinflussen, hat das ASKFOOD-Konsortium acht entscheidende Faktoren identifiziert: Technologie, Ökonomie, Marktgewohnheiten, Gesetzesgebung, Umwelt, Wissenschaft, transformative Industrie und soziale Dynamik (aus dem Englischen kurz TEMPESTS). Diese Faktoren werden das Wettbewerbsszenario in den nächsten Jahren gestalten. Der Forecast Aggregator ist als eine interaktive Bibliothek konzipiert, in der diese acht TEMPESTS analysiert werden. Aus der Zukunftsperspektive prognostiziert der Forecast Aggregator neue Kompetenzen und zukünftige Berufsprofile, die notwendig sein werden, wenn der besagte Trend anhält. Testen Sie den Forecast Aggregator: https://www.askfood.eu/tools/forecast/forecast/

Der Training Gap Identifier

Der Training Gap Identifier steht kurz vor der Veröffentlichung. Er ist ein online Selbsttest, basierend auf 40 Berufsprofilen, der die Diskrepanz zwischen aktuellen und zukünftig notwendigen Kompetenzen messen kann. Je nach erreichter Punktanzahl und der vom Unternehmen angestrebten Strategie und Position am Markt empfiehlt das Tool adäquate, individuell angepasste Schulungen.

Innovative Trainingsstrategien

Innerhalb dieses Arbeitspaketes beschäftigen sich unterschiedliche Zielgruppen (zB. Masterstudienprogramme) mit innovativen Trainingsmöglichkeiten, wie zB. Gamification oder Reverse mentoring. Durch eine umfassende Auswertung des Lernerfolges erwartet sich das ASKFOOD Konsortium als Resultat 1.) ein komplettes Portfolio der innovativen Trainingskonzepte, Methoden und Werkzeuge und 2.) eine genaue Anleitung zur Erneuerung und Aufwertung von Trainingsstrategien.

Der Reversed Incubator

Der Reversed Incubator soll, in Form einer innovativen Plattform, die industrieorientierten Berufskenntnisse von Studierenden, Lehrenden und in der Industrie Beschäftigten, mit der Hilfe innovativer Trainingsstrategien fördern. Gleichzeitig sollen Wissenschafts- und Technologiekenntnisse in die Industrie integriert werden. Als Resultat wird die gesamte Wertschöpfungskette des Lebensmittelsektors aufgewertet.

Die Permanent Alliance (Observatory)

Die Permanent Alliance wird laufend die aktuellsten Trends im Bereich der innovativen Trainingsmethoden mitverfolgen und analysieren. Die dadurch gewonnenen Erkenntnisse sollen zur Entwicklung innovativer Trainingsstrategien beitragen, die auf Trends im Lebensmittelsektor eingehen.
