Unique-Check has an intensive training programme which will continually take place in partner organisations during the life of the project. The training activities will carry out in the form of secondment involving research and technical staff as well as PhD students. In addition, a number of workshops have also been planned which will widely open to the scientific community, food industry, and other stakeholders.
