Field visit at Korea University, Seoul

2 Dec, 2019

After being granted with a travel scholarship by the Italian Embassy in South Korea, I had the pleasure to spend 10 days in Seoul, hosted by Professor Han of the Department of Food and Resource Economics of Korea University.

During my stay I delivered several seminars about EU food policies, especially explaining the Common Agriculture Policy, and the Food Quality Schemes. I also showed the results of my Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions project and the importance and potential collaboration of the Horizon2020 EU funding scheme.

I met several colleagues and students of Korea University and I therefore promoted the teaching/research activities of Università di Parma, including the International Summer School “Food Sustainability” and the "Food Safety and Food Risk Management" International Interuniversity MSc Degree.

I also had the possibility to visit local markets and enjoy tasting traditional #Korean foods, as well as meeting local people. I explained to students the added value of products bearing a geographical indication and the main difference between a PDO and PGI food (e.g. balsamic vinegar and traditional balsamic vinegar of Modena).

Finally, I have also been a guest at the Gala Dinner of the World Week of Italian Cuisine in Korea and met the Italian ambassador in Seoul.
