Design Thinking for Entrepreneurship in Agri-food Sector

The European project DTRaIN, financed with European Erasmus + funds, has the aim of revitalizing the production in the agri-food sector of the partner regions, promoting the acquisition of high quality skills for staff management and for entrepreneurs working in the sector.

Professionals working in the agri-food sector often lack the skills to strengthen the name and brand of local products and to face the challenge of a constantly evolving and highly competitive economic environment. The Design Thinking methodology has been used to revolutionize entire sectors and establish a competitive advantage for companies. Focused on listening, empathy, collaboration and experimentation, Design Thinking can be applied in any field, for product development, for business planning and beyond.

To achieve its objective, a European "Design Thinking" professional profile will be developed in the project, based on a qualification scheme for the validation of learning outcomes according to the ECVET (European Credit system for Vocational Education and Training) model and online with the ISO 17024 standard. More specifically, the objectives of the DTRaIN are:

• Designing an IFP curriculum and developing training content for entrepreneurs in the agri-food sector based on the Design Thinking methodology.

• Design an innovative educational model based on a student-centered approach, using the Flipped Classroom model
