Join us at the biggest Science event, New Scientist Live, from 7th-9th October 2023 to inspire others to learn about healthy and sustainable food!
About the event
This event is about celebrating Science. From the ocean, to space, to our passion – the food industry. The event will have speakers from well-known names to up-and-coming researchers. Across four stages, there will be over 50 speakers to learn from, which you can hear from by attending in person or tuning in online.
How is EIT Food involved
Food careers are exciting, extremely high-tech and a high-skilled industry. We need people who care about food to join the sector and make the change we require. From challenges regarding climate change, growing food, new proteins, and sustainable production, we welcome all those that have the passion to make a difference.
We will have a stand at the event accompanied by some of our partners and startups to talk with you about the opportunities on offer and how to get involved. If this sounds like you, come and see us and discover the exciting opportunities on offer within the agrifood industry. Whether you want to be a food scientist, engineer, a packaging designer or a chef, there is something for everyone.
Throughout the event, we will have different zones for attendees to visit, but what are they?
Let’s play zone: We will have activities which are based on protein diversification and healthy diets. We will also have an activity which you can get involved in where you can learn where to store food in your fridge in order to maximise shelf-life.
