TEFSI workshop 2TEFSI supports cooperation between 9 European universities to develop, implement and widely disseminate innovative teaching approaches, materials, methods and tools on various aspects of sustainable food systems. It thereby aims to increase educators' awareness about the importance of including sustainability issues into their everyday lecturing in food science, human nutrition, agriculture, and related university-level education. The project is ongoing and should continue until August 2021. There are already materials available (e.g. the TEFSI Hanbook: Impulses for Innovative Teaching) and more will be added to the project website as the project progresses until next year.
