Qian Janice Wang, tenure track at the Department of Food Science, is organising an EIT Food course this fall called “Curating Citizen Engagement”, where participants will learn to apply principles of citizen science to create public engagement activities hosted on a digital gamification platform.

The goal of the course is to teach participants to use a citizen science mindset to co-create solutions for food-related societal issues. The course will be held simultaneously at AU, University of Turin, Queens University Belfast, and Universidad Autonoma de Madrid. The course will involve 5 synchronous online sessions (Oct 22 – Dec 9) and participants will create a public engagement activity in groups of 1-3 people.

You can see more information about the course on blackboard. 
Find the registration page for students in Denmark here.

All research staff, especially PhD students, are encouraged to attend. “Fostering citizen-driven innovation for a sustainable transformation of the food system “ is explicitly stated in the EU Farm to Fork Strategy, so this course would prepare researchers well for European Green Deal!
