The program, held with the support of MacFrut Academy in cooperation with the University of Bologna within the Italy-Azerbaijan University project, consists of three modules.

The first module will last five days on February 19-23, 2024 at ADA University in Baku.

In this training, which will be held for professionals working in the relevant sector, representatives of industry, government, and academic circles will come together and exchange ideas to find solutions to the current problems and challenges of local small and medium enterprises. During the program, participants will be trained to draw lessons from current global trends and best international practices and adapt them to the local context to seek modern solutions to problems.

During the program, seminars with researchers and international experts, business meetings between producers specializing in horticulture in Azerbaijan and Italy, including professional seminars will be held.
