The methodology of Boost Cross Disciplinarity: STEM & Hospitality Contamination

The main focus of the Summer School lies on the active participation of the beneficiaries and a balance between theory and practice with hands-on examples from real life situations.

The indoor activities are conceived to promote peer to peer learning and simulation of real life situations through experience based methods and gamification. Furthermore, some open space activities engage the participants into the local community so as to develop a personal and professional perspective. 

Specifically, the participants have the chance to discover the city through study visits in host companies, gain awareness of the cultural heritage, and interact with the local community

The training during the Summer School provides a variety of methods in order to facilitate the active involvement of all participants through constructive dialogues, debates, brainstorming, presentations on the challenges dealt with by VET providers and mobility experts.

The training enables the participants to:

  • explore the cross disciplinary approach into the framework of Neurosciences & Food and to reflect on possible transferability in classrooms
  • Familiarize with Machine Learning, a branch of Artificial Intelligence which allows software to be “trained” to classify images, sounds and, generally, every kind of data without needing extra coding effort
  • Learn about the Erasmus+ programme, the future perspectives and have some insights on the project management cycle
