MAKE-IT!

MAKE-IT!

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.  

We will achieve this by: 

  • Convening a network of ‘maker spaces’, providing collaborative spaces to make, learn, explore and share, for hackathons and further prototyping resources;
  • Designing and delivering a series of hackathons across Europe where different stakeholders come together to find solutions to identified industry challenges in specific value chains;
  • Training professionals to be able to develop entrepreneurial capabilities across the food value chain in Europe.

The next dates for our hackathons are:

  • 11th-12th October at ETH Zurich, focussing on cocoa
  • Suitable for entrepreneurs
  • November at DIL Germany, focussing on meat
  • Suitable for students
  • December at VTT Finland, focussing on meat
  • Suitable for teenagers
