EIT Food Venturing School

EIT Food Venturing School

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.

During seven days participants will be informed about marine innovation, food and graphic design, human nutrition in food systems as well as food and digital disruptions. They will work in interdisciplinary teams, identifying problems, prototyping viable solutions with a validated value proposition and pitching their results in front of a panel of experts. Finally, they will present and pitch their ideas at an event/exhibition as a part of the Design March festival in Reykjavik.

The workshop is organised by the food and biotech institute Matis in Iceland, University of Cambridge, England and VTT the Technical Research Centre of Finland together with the Icelandic Academy of Arts and the Food Science and Nutrition Department of the University of Iceland with input from entrepreneurial companies in marine innovation in Iceland.
