    EIT Food Winter School

    During the EIT Food Entrepreneurship Winter School 30 students from many different study backgrounds and countries will come together to tackle the challenges Europe’s food system will face in the future.

    Over the course of 2 weeks, participants will be working in interdisciplinary teams, identifying problems, prototyping viable solutions with a validated value proposition and finally pitching their results in front of a panel of experts.
    The teams will start out in Germany at the Technical University of Munich for the first week, travel to the University of Cambridge together for the second week and also get the chance to receive further online coaching by the Queen’s University Belfast on how to take their start-up idea to reality.
