The activity implements the "EIT Food RIS Strategy, 2018-2020" and is complemented by KAVA # RIS Action Line 2 and KAVA # RIS Fellowships.
30 students from many study backgrounds and many countries will come together to use their scientific expertise to come up with new concepts and products that will lead to sustainable utilisation of marine resources.
The Action Line is divided into 2 complementary programmes – RIS Fellowships dedicated to Master of Science students and graduates and RIS Talents dedicated to Ph.D. students and postdocs from 28 EIT RIS countries which both aim to promote brain circulation, contributing to enhancing the innovativeness of personnel and development of scientific impact by supporting the creation and diffusion of high-quality new knowledge, skills, competences and solutions to food system challenges.
