The objective of EIT Food Innovator Fellowship is to empower talents to co-create, address, and gain experiences on excellent ideas capable of bringing their careers a step further, and foster innovators ready to respond to global food challenges.
Get matched with a farmer and test your solution on the field!
Regenerative agriculture offers one of the greatest opportunities to help Europe address human and climate health, along with the financial well-being of farmers.
The Regenerative Agriculture Revolution is a series of activities whose overall aim is to help farmers and agrifood businesses adopt more regenerative farming practices and raise public awareness about the important health, environmental and economic benefits of eating regeneratively produced food.
A 6-month programme that aims to transform innovative ideas and research breakthroughs into market-validated business propositions.
Creative workshops designed to find solutions to current and future challenges in the food and agriculture system
Inspire summer schools of EIT food will enable talanted individuals to become European food leaders. Use your entrepreneurial spirit to solve the challanges of our food system.
Creative infotaining is the future of knowledge transfer and co-creation among young generations.
Safelivery will develop innovative food delivery services and protocols to reduce the risk of surface and packaging contamination of “Ready To Eat Foods” with the COVID-19 virus and other agents.
Future-proof or future ready? Learn how COVID-19 will transform the agrifood sector in Central, Eastern and South Europe!
To create smarter and simpler food value chains across Europe we need to develop both infrastructure and capacity which stimulate and supports
innovation and entrepreneurship.
This project will implement dynamic pricing technology to reduce food waste by up to 40%, ensure a smoother supply chain of perishable goods and bring fairer prices to customers.
Mtching COVID will launch a platform connecting recovering COVID-19 patients with dietitians and health coaches to motivate them, follow-up and provide inspiring recipes.
COVID-19 BEAMitup will develop a diagnostic tool to improve on-site testing capacities of surfaces for the food industries to detect contamination or absence thereof, contributing to the security and resilience of the European agrifood system.
Healthricous will introduce a digital solution that makes shopping, cooking and keeping track of the daily food intake easy and accessible.
Farmers increasingly generate 'big' data about their fields.
TRACOD – Model-based Tracking of Cod and Other Fish Value Chain for Consumer Confidence Boosting and Food Engineers Education
We propose to use model-based systems engineering (MBSE) and conceptual modeling.
The aim of this project is to develop a ‘prosumerist’ digital toolkit– informed by research in linguistics, information design, nutritional science and behavioural economics—to gather information that will help manufacturers and marketers communicate more effectively about the health benefits of food and help consumers make more informed choices.
GLAD - Green Last Mile Delivery: a more sustainable way for food home delivery tailored to consumer needs
Consumers are looking for convenience. This is reflected in the growth of food e-delivery. However, the extra traffic causes problems in dense populated areas and has a high impact on the environment (CO2, particulate matter,….).
Food safety is one of the major concerns in food production. Improving tracking & tracing especially for the management of food safety events can lead to a faster reaction time and elimination of potentially hazardous products, thus prevention of food borne illnesses and loss of lives.
The starting point is the clear link between the dietary pattern of consumers and the environmental footprint of these patterns.
This joint Cross-KIC activity, coordinated by EIT Manufacturing together with EIT Digital and EIT Food, will establish innovative and future proof end-to-end digitized test beds, customer-centric, end-to-end scenarios at the food & beverage sector considering the whole product life cycle.
Precision agriculture has a high potential to improve farming practices leading to increased technical efficiency, better use of inputs, and therefore diminished environmental footprint.
FoodUnfolded® is an online platform designed to familiarise the public with food technology, building understanding through relevant topics like health, safety and sustainability.
Explore how circular economy can foster sustainable urban food systems
The Curating Citizen Engagement project will revolutionise our way of solving grand societal challenges by creating a platform for massive public involvement and knowledge generation, specifically targeting food-related issues.
FoodAmbassadors is a project that aims to engage food and health Influencers in order to co-create science-based content for their community.
Every year, over 23 million people in Europe fall ill from unsafe food, leading to 5,000 death cases.
The food that consumers buy and eat is influenced by a complex interaction of cognitive, sensory, economic, and health factors that lead to gaps between their intentions and behaviour.
To further develop and test a digital platform as a supporting basis for creating and delivering personalised nutrition (PN) services in Europe via a non-profit organisation with payable services/memberships to cover operational costs. Services are scientifically validated and designed for use by companies, healthcare services, researchers, and professionals wanting to provide consumers with improved personalised nutrition advice and services.
In the fight against chronic diet-related diseases it is the EU food and health system organization’s aim to improve consumers’ food literacy. Food education in a form of professional personalised advice is more trusted and accepted by consumers.
Challenges in today’s Food System are complex and interconnected – to address them, innovative solutions along the entire value chain are required.
TriboTec: Protein enrichment and fractionation of side streams by dry tribo-electrostatic separation technology
Triboelectric separation is a technology which is so far used in mineral processing. The water-free separation is based on the induced electrical contact charge of particle surfaces.
VITAL: Validation of Innovative Tools to Assess and to improve microbioLogical safety in the food chain
Conventional microbiological testing takes time to get results. This impacts the supply chain, causing delays to get to market whilst results come back on finished but not shipped goods.
