Social and national needs of the country are to educate and produce highly trained scientific staff, specialized in nutrition at Master's and Doctoral degree levels, including: second cycle qualification in nutrition, food quality, and safety and third cycle qualification in innovative food technologies and nutrition. In order to improve population health by improving the quality of nutrition and nutrition practices through education and research, we determined the following objectives: supporting proactive partnership in defining national standards for the formulation of academic study programs in food and nutrition sciences, supporting introduction of innovative food technologies, nutrition and dietetics, forming a set of competencies upon completion of studies, and creating and rolling out a Web site and e-learning tools. The model of designing, planning, and implementation of curricula is in accordance with European standards for improvement of academic and practical curricula and European Federation of the Association of Dieticians advanced competencies. Proactive work with the industry is related to internships placements.
