The Interdisciplinary ISAFRUIT-Vasco da Gama Process and its Resulting House of Quality Method: The next step towards sustainable fruit production while addressing consumer demands with critical problem-oriented research. One of the objectives of the Vasco da Gama process was to build bridges between ISAFRUIT social science and natural science specialists, to facilitate an interdisciplinary, impact-oriented team work approach in developing sustainable fruit growing and conservation technology. A systematic, science-based response to consumer demand was – on one side – an innovative element in the sustainability concept applied by ISAFRUIT, while it was an enormous but enriching challenge to be made real on the other. This Scripta volume tells the story and details and explains the main outcomes of the process that guided ISAFRUIT to develop a science-based methodology for coping with this challenge, called the Vasco da Gama process. The process was concluded at Lisboa at a workshop held within the International Horticultural Congress, IHC 2010. That the extraordinary Vasco da Gama bridge happens to be a Lisboa landmark is a somewhat amusing situational coincidence. And why "Vasco da Gama – process"?

Abstract

The Interdisciplinary ISAFRUIT-Vasco da Gama Process and its Resulting House of Quality Method: The next step towards sustainable fruit production while addressing consumer demands with critical problem-oriented research. One of the objectives of the Vasco da Gama process was to build bridges between ISAFRUIT social science and natural science specialists, to facilitate an interdisciplinary, impact-oriented team work approach in developing sustainable fruit growing and conservation technology. A systematic, science-based response to consumer demand was – on one side – an innovative element in the sustainability concept applied by ISAFRUIT, while it was an enormous but enriching challenge to be made real on the other. This Scripta volume tells the story and details and explains the main outcomes of the process that guided ISAFRUIT to develop a science-based methodology for coping with this challenge, called the Vasco da Gama process. The process was concluded at Lisboa at a workshop held within the International Horticultural Congress, IHC 2010. That the extraordinary Vasco da Gama bridge happens to be a Lisboa landmark is a somewhat amusing situational coincidence. And why "Vasco da Gama – process"? Read more about it in this Scripta Horticulturae volume.
