Biotehnički fakultet Univerziteta u Bihaću partner je u konzorciju projekta „MSc in Sustainable Food Production Systems/STEPS“ financiranog od strane European Commission – EACEA, (Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency – EU). Cilj projekta je razvoj kurikuluma i stvaranje laboratorijskih-infrastrukturnih pretpostavki („Laboratorija za kontrolu kvaliteta hrane“ i „ICT centar za upravljanje sistemima za proizvodnju hrane“) za realizaciju studija drugog ciklusa o održivim sistemima proizvodnje hrane. Projekt se, kao i mnogi drugi Erasmus+ projekti, realizuje udruženim naporima nekoliko univerziteta iz zemalja sa područja Zapadnog Balkana (Bosna i Hercegovina, Albanija, Kosovo) i partnerskih univerziteta iz zemalja članica Evropske unije (Grčka, Češka Republika, Rumunija). Kao svoj konačni cilj projekt ima razvoj i operacionalizaciju studija drugog ciklusa u čijem središtu je obrazovanje magistara struke za primjenu principa koncepta održivosti u sistemima proizvodnje hrane.

Development of teaching/learning environment

Detailed argumentation and specification for equipment procurement

The aim is to build the capacity of laboratories of partner countries in terms of:

  • ICT-centres equipped with computers, software and relevant infrastructures that will be used for the development/enhancement of teaching/learning environment.
  • Advanced measurement instrumentation related to small-scale food processing and most importantly, food quality and control.
  • Licenses of advanced software tools used for analysing processes and supply chain scenarios, in terms of supply chain management, energy consumption and environmental impact, and the evaluation of feasibility of basic and alternative scenarios.

Two types of laboratories will be developed:

  • Food Quality Control Lab – it will offer the advantage to experimentally specify the quality of agricultural products, by uttilization of mass spectrometry, in particular after small-scale treatment and/or small-scale processing.
  • Food Production Systems Management Lab – it will offer to students the opportunity to design and analyse processes, supply chains and evaluate the performance of production systems, in terms of energy consumption, environmental impact and recoup.

The equipment will be used to improve the quality of teaching and the level of knowledge delivered, but it will also increase the potential of the scientific staff so that they are able to prepare and publish research articles in international scientific journals and conferences. These types of laboratories in the partner countries will offer also the opportunity to organise joint programmes with industrial partners or small and medium private sector companies, and national bodies involved in decision-making and the development of policies. Considering the educational content of the STEPS programme in particular, each of the experiments and simulations and training material should include learning outcomes on an experiment/simulation level, a detailed description of the experiment/simulation, guidance and a description of the steps towards the successful implementation of the activity.
