Systematic Review to Identify Skill Needs for Agrifood Nanotechnology Workforce
Yawson, Robert M.
Career and Technical Education Research, v42 n3 p149-181 Dec 2017
As nanotechnology continues to advance in food and agriculture, there is the need for pragmatic decisions as to how to prepare the workforce. A comprehensive systematic evidence review (SER) and analysis of the literature to identify skill needs for the emerging agrifood nanotechnology sector and to determine how agricultural education can contribute to human resource and workforce development for this sector was conducted. The main conclusions from this study are that future shortage, and skills gaps in agrifood nanotechnology are expected to increase. However, there is still quite a lot of uncertainty about future developments and impacts of nanotechnology in the agrifood sector to accurately determine future demand and supply of agrifood nanoskilled workforce.
