FOODMIO

The objective of FOODMIO is to generate a multidisciplinary, challenge-based learning program for bachelor, master and doctoral students, young researchers, and professionals.

FOODMIO will serve as a catalyst for the creation of sustainable and tangible solutions to real-life product development challenges by eclectic and creative food professionals. The focus of the program will be on attempts to complete a circular food sector that maximizes the exploitation of side-streams from vegetable and fruit manufacturing or novel raw materials (algae- or insect-based) in meat products, which is called MeatHybrids. Around 40 students from five academic organizations, academic advisors, as well as mentors from several business partner organizations will form multi-stakeholder teams. FOODMIO will epitomize the potential of a multidisciplinary, challenge-based learning program to help revolutionize the food sector and create new leaders for future innovations.
