Innovative Education towards
the Needs of the Organic Sector

Intellectual Output 7

O7 EPOS Intellectual Output comprises of a programme of the Students Internships/Problem Solving Projects, that have been organized in all EPOS partner countries within the course of the project (between January and March/May 2016).

EPOS Problem Solving Projects involved 84 students & 26 stakeholders representing organic sector in all 7 participating countries. Students (in most cases those participating in the EPOS Intensive Study Programme + additionally enrolled students) cooperated with stakeholders representing organic sector. Students previously involved in the project became mentors for the newly recruited students (teams of 3 students were created); each team was working with one stakeholder; physical meetings and virtual cooperation were organised. Students’ task was to identify stakeholders’ problems/weaknesses and develop strategies to help solving them. Students were supervised by lecturers from their universities. In most participating countries the Internships were acknowledged by the University Authorities and European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) was applied to award the participants (3-4 ECTS, depending on the country).
