EIT Food Education has a long history of supporting Ecotrophelia Europe, a food innovation competition for students in higher education. On the principle of a food innovation “Champions League” each European country organises its own national competition to select the most innovative food project that will then be presented at ECOTROPHELIA Europe. Each country's selection is coordinated by its national food federation. The teams are composed of 2 to 10 students from either public or private higher education European establishments, scientific or commercial.

While the competition itself is not open to the public, the awards ceremony is, and we are happy to invite you!
