School of Interdisciplinary Science and Innovation (ISI) online short-term program /I-COIL " Food: Health, Technology and Environment " was held for 10 days from Wednesday, October 24, 2023 to Wednesday, November 28, 2023. This program was held by Assistant Prof. Lau Yin Kun Anthony (Lingnan University, Hong Kong), and Prof. Mako Nakamura (ISI).

The course aims to provide students a comprehensive overview of scientific principles and issues related to food production and consumption by combining knowledge from multiple disciplines, including food, environmental, public health and social sciences. Upon completion of the course, students should be able to critically discuss the concepts and apply the knowledge to make healthy and sustainable choices of food. 35 from Lingnan Unversity and 13 from Kyushu University participated in the program. After lectures by Assistant Prof. Lau Yin Kun Anthony, and Prof. Mako Nakamura, groups of students were formed for group work and presented final presentations in English. The participants seemed to learn a lot about the differences between the two countries and the program seemed to have been very fruitful for the both universities’ students.
