The Erasmus+ Capacity Building in Higher Education (CBHE) project SEA-ABT will increase the capacities of the Thai universities for delivering modern high quality curricula and Life Long Learning (LLL) in the area of beverage technology. The development of demand-driven courses, modules and related educational products will be using innovative pedagogical approaches and teaching tools for use in higher education (HE) and continuous professional education (CPD).  For the sustainable collaboration in HE and CPD, within the 3-year project the partners will establish an independent joint Academy for Beverage Technology- with hubs in Thailand and in the EU - to manage training and continuous exchange of best practice between the Thai and European partners.

The consortium consists of 9 partners and is coordinated by the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna, Austria (BOKU). The remaining partners are Hochschule Geisenheim, Germany (HGU); University of Teramo, Italy (UNITE); ISEKI-Food Association, Austria (IFA); Chualongkorn University, Thailand (CU); Kasetsart University, Thailand (KU); King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, Thailand (KMITL); Patkol Public Company Limited, Thailand (PATKOL); and Habla-Chemie GmbH, Thailand (HABLA).
