Not listed in Intellectual Outputs (to be produced during the project):

– Project website (Coordinator will create the website in Dec 2016, after discussions with partners during M1. Website will contain general information about the project consortium, objectives, envisaged outputs etc., and the newsletter about transnational meetings and local activities. It will be a platform for communication for all partners and efficient tool for dissemination of the project results).

– Facebook profile (University of Copenhagen will develop a Facebook profile for the project in Nov 2016 and invite all interested parties to view the profiles and to keep track of the project activities and outcomes. The profile will be used to build a student and alumni network in the topic of sustainable food system.

– Reports from Transnational Meetings

Coordinator will prepare a short report after each Meeting to be placed on the project website and Facebook profile.

– Students’ reports  from Small Research Projects and presentations given at schools (Short reports will be created by students in the end of activities, in English).

INTANGIBLE RESULTS (during the project and on its completion)

Educational activities organised within the project will enable students to gain multidisciplinary, quality knowledge, and will enable lecturers to exchange their experience on teaching contents and new curricula approaches.

– Innovation of educational methods used within partner universities and beyond (Innovative methods will be promoted at partner universities and other institutions targeted in the dissemination plan. As majority of the methods and tools tested in the project could be applied to any sector, they will be of interest to the wide range of higher education representatives in Europe).

– Increased skills & knowledge of project participants (looking at the outcomes of previously organized Intensive Study Programmes and other activities, it is expected that participation in the SUSPLUS activities will strengthen students’ team working- and communication skills, ability to adapt to new situations, analytical and problem solving skills and entrepreneurship, and build their confidence in communication in English. Knowledge & skills gained during the project will increase students’ chances on the labour market. The Small Research Projects could be in addition a beginning of further cooperation between stakeholders and the best students).

– Increased social awareness (project activities will increase social awareness of the importance of changing the current food systems into more sustainable ones & will provide some guidelines on how to do it. This message will reach such project participants as students, university lecturers, school pupils, school teachers, stakeholders representing food sector and other direct and indirect target groups of the project).

– Strengthened enterprises representing sustainable food sector in Europe (Stakeholders involved in the project will have opportunity to make direct use of the cooperation with students and university lecturers during the Small Research Projects).

– Increase of the volume of students & staff mobility and improvement of the quality & volume of cooperation between higher education institutions in Europe

– Increase of transparency & compatibility between European universities

– Improvement of the cooperation between universities & enterprises
