Challenge Labs are designed to tackle the big problems facing the food sector by bringing together diverse groups of people. It is hoped that Challenge Labs will spark co-founder relationships, lead to the creation of new businesses and build links between industry, academia and startups. The primary aim of each Challenge Lab is to find innovative solutions to big, tangible problems faced by the food sector.
Challenge Labs programme is developed under Regional Innovation Scheme - RIS. You can read more about the scheme here.
In 2021 we will host 17 Challenge Labs around Eastern, Central and Southern Europe.
