EIT Food Winter School

EIT Food Winter School

During the EIT Food Entrepreneurship Winter School 30 students from many different study backgrounds and countries came together to tackle the challenges of Europe’s food system.

Over the course of 2 weeks, participants were working in interdisciplinary teams, identifying problems, prototyping viable solutions with a validated value proposition and finally pitching their results in front of a panel of experts. The teams started out in Germany at the Technical University of Munich for the first week, travelled to the University of Cambridge together for the second week and also got the chance to receive further online coaching by the Queen’s University Belfast on how to take their start-up idea to reality.
