EIT Food RIS Solutions
EIT Food RIS Solutions is aimed at engaging student groups with multi-disciplinary backgrounds, from RIS countries and of all educational levels, to work jointly on problem cases responding to agrifood challenges in RIS countries.
About the project
EIT Food RIS Solutions is a new programme for ambitious teams of students who want to be involved in solving industrial problems identified by partners. The best teams of students have a chance to get an invitation for Foodhatons organized in Poland and Italy.
EIT Food RIS Solutions is targeted at engaging student groups with multi-disciplinary backgrounds from RIS countries and of all educational levels, in working jointly on problem issues responding to agrifood challenges in RIS countries. Students have to form a team, record a video along with their briefly described ideas how to deal with industrial problems. The jury will select 25 teams based on videos applications for three months mentoring.
In developing industrially relevant solutions during a period of three months students will be supported in their activities by not only academics and professionals but also will be provided with coaching and mentoring services about IPR issues, business plan writing and guideliness how to pitch. After mentoring period, teams will prepare a detailed power point presentation. On the basis of that presentation, 25 teams will be evaluated by the jury again.
Only 20 selected students teams will gain invitations for “Food Marathons – Foodhatons” and will present the results of their activities (i.e. a food prototype, a new solution, a business model). In November 2019, two Foodhatons will be organized in Poland and Italy.
