DIPFABLAB : Design of Innovative Products in Fablab

La COMUE Sorbonne Universités a organisé sa première école d'hiver internationale, DIPFablab (Design of Innovative Products in Fablab), qui s'est déroulée pendant 2 semaines :

  • du 1er au 6 février 2016 à Verrès, à l'antenne de l'Ecole Polytechnique de Turin
  • du 15 au 20 février 2016 au Centre d'Innovation de l'UTC, à Compiègne

L'école d'hiver a permis de mettre l'accent sur les techniques et les outils pour la création de produits innovants dans les Fablabs.

Cette école est ouverte à tous les étudiants de l'UTC (doctorants compris). Elle permet de découvrir le monde des Fablabs et de profiter d'activités gratuites extra-scolaires mises en place spécialement, tels qu'un skipass, des diners de gala, et bien d'autres !

Summer School : Module 3 - Science and Culture Seminars - International School - Culinary Science for Tastier, Healthier Food

› July 17-28 2017

This two-week summer school is an innovative combination of food science, nutrition and French gastronomy. The latest trends and knowledge in gastronomy science will be addressed theoretically and directly applied to the preparation of famous French dishes and desserts during cooking workshops at our culinary platform.

After a first week dedicated to learning how to master the food texture, the gained knowledge will be applied to enhance the nutritional profile of food. By mastering the food texture, innovative technological solutions will be proposed and used to prepare healthier version of world-wide known French specialties.

Course Objective

  • Main principles and theories of food science and mechanisms of phenomena occurring during dish preparation  
  • The food composition impact on satiety and health
  • How to prepare healthier dishes and to enhance their nutritional profile using innovative approaches
  • How to choose the best cooking process or texturing agent
  • How to prepare famous French dishes, sauces, desserts and confectioneries

TECHNICO-CULTURAL OUTINGS EACH WEDNESDAY AND SATURDAY
