3 Why? The use of information- and communication technology in Finland in hotel- and restaurant education is minimal Net based education material is scattered and thus difficult to use -> the project will assemble Lack of updated, high quality education material for degrees of this industry -> the project will produce Need for a common international, modern and anticipating professional forum To create a national cooperation between the organizers of restaurant education and the entrepreneurs in business life To develop the contents of education in this industry and to add diverse cooperation with working life

4 Aim To remodel the methods of teaching in restaurant industry to get an entity which uses information- and communication technology together with a committed national network of working life To create an appealing, international, inspiring and innovative information- and learning environment which also remodels know-how -> A new learning environment, built with a social web application in which information and communication technology will be a solid part of teaching

5 How?
