Meet the EIT Food team
Get to know the faces behind EIT Food. We are a pan-European organisation with colleagues spread throughout our 5 regional offices.
We are very passionate about changing the food system through our work and each of us brings our own perspective to the table; be that expertise in Entrepreneurship, in Innovation, in Education, Public Engagement or in Operations. So, you can either find us working hard within our regional teams or, within these exciting areas!
EIT food is a pan-European partnership. We encourage development of solutions to the biggest societal challenges, accelerate innovation, create jobs and increase Europe’s competitiveness.
EIT Food has been set up with headquarters in Leuven/Belgium and 5 regional centers across Europe to stimulate innovation, talent development and consumer involvement.
