Program description

Food Safety & Security

The Food Safety & Security Summer Institute is a unique program offering graduate-level students the tools to meet the growing need for a new generation of well-rounded academics who can combine their specific expertise with a broad understanding of food security related issues. Beyond the high level academic courses, students will participate in an exciting social and cultural program that will allow them to interact with other students and to be exposed to Israeli agricultural innovation. The purpose of this program is to explore the many dimensions of food security. Together, students and lecturers from different countries and disciplines develop a new “language” of food security – in a manner of true interdisciplinary education.

2 tracks are offered to give students the ability to delve deeper into specific fields: Agriculture and Policy and Nutrition. These tracks offer students the ability to delve deeper into specific fields. The tracks will begin with an Introduction to Food Security course covering global food security issues ranging from modern approaches to crop development and agro economics to the intersection between health, agriculture, post-harvest, and nutrition.

  • Agriculture:The Agriculture Track will cover advanced topics in plant biology including desert agriculture, and plant epigenetics and gene expression in changing environments. Students should hold a BSc degree in plant sciences, agriculture, biotechnology, forestry, or a related field. Students must have a strong background in biology.
