UNITO, DISAFA Department offers the Agricultural sciences, Science and Food Technology both at bachelor and Master’s Degree. About 2000 students are enrolled in curricula related to the agricultural sector offered within the department. Two renewable energies classes, involving about 160 students, are offered at the Master level, and many types of research have been carried out in the field of renewables in agriculture, from photovoltaic, biogas and solid biomass use at the farm both in developed and developing countries. DISAFA has an active collaboration with the University of Florida for what concerns innovative learning methods. The University of Florida is currently the most successful in the USA in this field. Since 2014 UNITO has offered flipped classroom projects with students of the agri-food science and technology curricula of UNITO. These skills will be shared with other partners and the trainers to implement the flipped classroom. For this project, both skills on renewable energy use at farm level and innovative teaching methods will be shared with the partners.
