The EIT Food core tasks
We focus on four different areas to change the food system in a holistic way:
We are fostering collaboration across the entire food system to develop innovative technologies, products and services and to build a shared vision for the future of food, transforming it for the better..
We are attracting, developing and empowering talent to lead the transformation of the food system into an innovative sector that produces healthy and sustainable food, and is trusted by society.
Startups play a fundamental role in transforming the food system. We support innovative impactful agrifood entrepreneurs and startups to deliver new food innovations and businesses in Europe.
We believe that we are all responsible for, and connected to, the food that we eat so we all need to work together to improve it.
