Workshop: Culinary experience management - Tea and Senses
Presenter: Dr. Hartwig Bohne (SRH Berlin University of Applied Sciences) Tuesday, 25 October 2022 @ 14:00-15:30 Wittenborg University | TBC
Objective: To open an experimental lab in order to make the participants more familiar with the secrets of tea in comparison to wine and other beverages, to make a tasting experiment in order to see options for pairing and to gain data for next research projects.
Apeldoorn is located in The Netherlands and there, in 1620, the first companies imported tea and introduced it to Europe. This spirit the organizers would like to transfer to 2022 showing innovative approaches to tea consumption and production, joint activities with culinary links. The organizing researches from Breda, The Hague and Dresden have collaborated since 2020 in the fields of European tea cultures and traditions incl. joint publications and lectures. They would like to embrace the EuroCHRIE participants with the fascinating world of tea and more. For this, it is also planned to invite a US researcher virtually.
The variety of tea and the options of pairing are relevant for F&B experiences as marketing activities and culinary attractions. The training of hotel and tourism professionals as well as the development of guidelines and handbooks should be discussed. This, should be seen as a first step of a discussion if tea as a topic could be implemented more intensely in the curriculums of culinary/hospitality/tourism studies in European universities.
Panel: Women Entrepreneurs in Hospitality and Tourism
Presenter: Dr. Sumeetra Ramakrishnan (University of Surrey)
Tuesday, 25 October 2022 @ 11:00-15:30(Break: 12:30–14:00) Wittenborg University | TBC
Objective: To look at women entrepreneurs and their contribution to H&T. To identify the gap between education and industry, and co-develop possible solutions to support future female entrepreneurs. To create knowledge exchange and experience sharing opportunities for practitioners in H&T sectors"
The symposium builds up on work undertaken by the GESPi research center at the University of Surrey. It aims to present collaborative research between SHTM at the University of Surrey, H&T organizations and social enterprises seeking to advance knowledge whilst influencing social change and enabling inclusive policy development. The research focus on gender and entrepreneurial opportunities intends to inspire and prepare the next generation of female entrepreneurs as they rise through the challenges post pandemic.
This is a timely topic both in terms of innovations in enterprise in H&T (advances in technology, focus on community and suitability initiatives, new business models through and post pandemic) as well as conversations around EDI (inclusive education and workspaces, supporting female participation and progression in H&T careers). It is also an apt forum to raise awareness among the members of EuroCHRIE on gender equality issues through discussions between industry and academia and how we can come together to shape the future of H&T enterprise through education.
