The FoodStories project is on a mission to equip food science academics at all levels with storytelling techniques that will help them communicate scientific facts and results in a more engaging and memorable way to a non-expert audience.

What are we going to do? (aka, the objectives)

The FoodStories project has two main objectives:

  • Increase the ability of food scientists to communicate effectively about their research to non-expert audiences by using storytelling
  • Enhance the capabilities of professors and universities to innovate their curricula to teach food science communication through methodologies, good practices and hands-on trainings.

How will we get there?

To achieve these objectives, FoodStories will implement several activities, including:

  • Researching and collecting best practices on storytelling for science communication.
  • Developing an interactive platform for selected best practices.
  • Conducting hands-on practical sessions with small groups of researchers.
  • Drafting a syllabus and script for a masterclass on food science storytelling.

EUFIC's Role

EUFIC will lead the development and testing of hands-on practical sessions and support the project's dissemination activities to ensure that the results reach a wide range of stakeholders across Europe. We will also contribute to mapping best practices, creating the masterclass and validating all project results.
