Technical Platform on the Measurement and Reduction of Food Loss and Waste

Course Lost Harvest and Wasted food (fellowship opportunity)

Wageningen (Netherlands), 14/09/2015 - 25/09/2015

Large contrasts exist in how we manage the food we have available. While in parts of our societies there is a shortage of food, in the urban and wealthier communities, good food is thrown away only because it is beyond its sell-by date. Optimising the ‘farm to fork’ chain can contribute significantly to food security.

The Wageningen UR Centre for Development Innovation offers a new course for people moved by active interest and professional experience in this field. Participants should be proficient in English, and have at least a BSc degree or an equivalent academic qualification.


Interested candidates can apply at the website of Centre for Development Innovation, Wageningen UR for admission to the training. Click here to read more
