Small Research Projects

Small Research Projects (also called ‘problem solving projects’) were organized in all SUSPLUS partner countries between October 2017 and April 2018. This activity involved students’ cooperation with enterprises active in the area of the sustainable food systems. Students (in most cases those participating in the SUSPLUS Intensive Study Programme, but also additionally enrolled students) were working in groups (pairs) with selected stakeholders. Physical & on-line meetings were organised. Students’ task was to define the sustainability issues (including many perspectives), evaluate the system & identify space for improvement, find alternative solutions or best practice models.

The international report from this educational activity, containing information such as description of the target groups (group of students and stakeholders), undertaken tasks/topics, feedback from the participants, the most spectacular outcomes & further perspectives for cooperation, as well as the analysis of strengths and weaknesses of this teaching activity, is available here:
