EIT Food West

Below are the contact details of our regional office. Get in touch if you want to improve the food system with us.

What we do...

EIT Food has recently merged 3 regions into one in order to better serve partners in those areas and market needs according to geographical areas. As the new West region comes together, this page will be populated with content relevant to the new region.

We unlock innovation potential in businesses and universities, and create and ​scale agrifood startups to bring new technologies and products ​to market. ​We bring people together in order to create a healthier food system.

Our West region covers the following areas: United Kingdom, Ireland, Iceland, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Iceland, Luxembourg, Switzerland and The Netherlands, with teams on the ground across four countries (UK, Germany, France and Belgium).

We welcome you to join our community and join us on our mission.
