I want to solve problems in the food system

Our co-creation programmes are for students who want to help tackle big societal challenges.

Solve global challenges

We need new ideas to help solve some of the toughest global challenges and to help transform the food system. Students are great creative thinkers, often giving different insights into possible solutions. That's why our programmes are designed to help them do just that.

Our education programmes are designed to bring students, industry and entrepreneurs together to co-create new solutions for the food system, that can have real impact in the world. 

Inspire programmes are 1-2 week long courses on entrepreneurship, the co-creation of entrepreneurial ideas, innovation and business creation principles and skills. Programmes are aimed at giving you a taste of entrepreneurship or to help accelerate your idea. 

Food Solution programmes are focused on industrial challenges. Students work with others on an industrially relevant problem set for a period of three months up to one year.
