Project Background

We are living in a rapidly changing world which brings new challenges to our society. The world now is facing complex societal challenges that need a collective response, which requires people to break down their silos and start to collaborate across disciplines. Food waste is one of the key societal challenges in Indonesia, the fourth largest populous country and the second largest food waster in the world. One intervention to resolve this societal challenge is through collaboration across disciplines by implementing an interdisciplinary approach to foster collaborative innovation in food waste management.

This capacity building project, IN2FOOD, is driven by a wide national concern on food waste and a need of interdisciplinary in higher education curriculum in Indonesia. Through this project, we aim to modernize the curriculum in 5 higher education institutions in Indonesia to deal with food waste management as a societal challenge in Indonesia and implement an interdisciplinary approach to foster collaborative innovation.
