Module Content In this module, the students acquire basic knowledge in areas that are central to the Master’s programme. The focus is on food value creation, regeneration and preneurship. Innovation development methods are presented and first application examples tested. In addition, the students plan their Individual Study Journey by analysing their own skills and their personal role as a preneur and formulating their individual development goals. In this multidisciplinary approach, the students develop a systemic understanding of the food system and learn to act independently and reflectively.
