In order to address this opportunity, this project tries to tackle the challenge through the following specific objectives:
Through the use of innovative and collaborative methodologies (service design and lean methodologies), the project will design in a last stage, together with the main actors with competences in education and industrial areas, the pathway (through the service design tool "blueprint"), to integrate this new expert profile into the vocational training ecosystem.
As direct target public
For the expert profile in by-products and wastes valorization in agri-food sector:
- Professionals of agri-food sector (technical profiles)
- Vocational training students, graduates, masters in the agro industrial sector

At the beginning of the project, each partner will map in a regional scope the main stakeholders related to the project, in order to create 5 National and one European Databases.
A Survey will be created among the stakeholder identified. Later, one group of selected representatives will take part in the FocusGroup to get deeper understanding and validate the results obtained with surveys.
Once the course design is finished, will start the Training Course Testing Process to be able to explore the possibilities that this training is offering them, counting on the support of partner’s staff as a tutor, and giving feedback to partners about both,training contents and platform.
Finally, all partners will involve participants in their Multiplier Events not only for the main target but also to the indirect target public and stakeholders.
