Our food system faces dynamic and treacherous challenges, driven by population growth, rapidly changing consumer tastes, and shifting expectations and climate change. The most innovative food businesses do more than understand the issues impacting technology, trends, and policies--they create, develop, and refine them. From Personalized Nutrition to Cloud Computing to Biotechnology to Next Generation Agriculture, this fast-paced, six-week, online, survey course, Technology, Trends, and Policies Transforming the Food System, conveys essential content and context for all food business innovators. This course provides corporate intrapreneurs with the essential forecasting information they need to make high-impact contributions to their organizations--and it provides emerging innovators with direct access to industry pioneers who will unpack research, share predictions, and present approaches to transforming the food system.
This exciting course will be led by Dr. Justin Siegel, the acting Director of the Innovation Institute for Food and Health at the University of California, Davis and founder of two companies. Dr. Siegel's scientific efforts are on the design and discovery of enzymes of interest to modern society. He has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the Sloan Research Fellowship in 2014.
Food industry innovators, business leaders, and corporate intrapreneurs or aspiring entrepreneurs of any size company looking to make smart, strategic, high-impact, cross-disciplinary decisions that will translate into usable, action-based business models to help you lead and adapt in today's dynamic and challenging food economy.
