Approximately 50 teachers, professors, trainers, and staff from educational institutions and food sector companies gathered to explore, cutting-edge advancements in using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to ensure food safety.

The topic of the presentation revolved around how harnessing the power of AI in ensuring food safety can lead to a safer and more secure global food supply, protecting public health and fostering consumer confidence in the food products they consume. Through an exploration of the latest AI advancements in the food safety domain, attendees gained valuable insights into the transformative impact of AI on food safety measures. TITAN project represents a groundbreaking endeavor that harnesses the potential of AI to revolutionize food safety practices. By proactively detecting and preventing foodborne hazards, optimizing supply chain management, and empowering consumers with relevant information, the project aims to create a safer and more secure food ecosystem for all. As the project progresses, it is expected to set a precedent for leveraging technology in ensuring food safety and pave the way for a healthier and more sustainable future for global food systems. 

The “Schools as Sites for Food System Transformation” Summer School (2-7 July 2023) aimed to familiarise participants with the open schooling and living labs approach that provides a powerful framework for school heads and teachers to engage, discuss and explore: how schools can become innovation incubators and accelerators? The “Schools as sites for Food System Transformation” Summer School 2023 aimed to explore and introduce innovative practices and approaches (living-lab methodology) for overcoming the growing divide between consumption and food knowledge by engaging schools in (re-)connecting young people with the land. With the goal to better connect schools to current research and the societal needs of the communities they live in; the Food Systems theme will act as the ideal testbed under which the Living Lab projects will be set up as an aspect that concerns all communities.
