The APPETITE (Agrifood Partnership Promoting Education for the Transition of the Industry Toward Enduring Business Models) EU Project (2017-2019), co-funded by the European Commission in the Framework of the Erasmus + Programme, is made up of seven partners: Aalborg University (Denmark), Coordina (Spain), Critt Agroalimentaire (France), Federalimentare (Italy), Fedacova (Spain), Tatics (Italy), Setbir (Turkey).

The Consortium aims at developing and delivering training and practical education on enduring business models through an innovative training course addressing both experienced agri-food entrepreneurs and youth, seeking for new job opportunities. Thus, the Project addresses the need for education and training in the field of Enduring Business Models in the agri-food sector, with a focus on CSR and sustainability, in order to lead a thoroughgoing renewal of the sector. To tackle this issue, APPETITE will develop an online course, characterised by open and innovative education methods, perfectly in line with the digital era.

Through this platform, young people and experienced agrifood entrepreneurs could build and strengthen their skills in the design of sustainable business models. Furthermore, the Project is fully in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, notably:


  • • n° 4.7 – By 2030, ensure all learners acquire knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development;
  • • n° 8 – Promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all.
