Venture creation as part of food related trade and scientific events II

Venture creation as part of food related trade and scientific events II

Institute of Animal Reproduction and Food Research in Olsztyn (IARFR) Poland, Matis ohf in Iceland, VTT in Finland and University of Cambridge, England will run a venture creation workshop connected to XXIV Session of Young Scientific Staff and VII International Session for Young Researchers in Olsztyn Poland in June 2019.

The participants will learn the art of creation by building and testing their own strategy instead of listening to theory as well as the opportunity to find others to launch a startup with. It will address the needs of students from RIS countries. The proposed action addresses the challenge of improving entrepreneurial culture, gaps in talents and skills of university graduates as well as well as insufficient adoption of emerging technologies. There is an opportunity to get more impact out of food-related scientific events by linking them to “Venturing Schools”.
