Our RIS innovation programmes

Innovation is key to develop a stronger, future-oriented agrifood system.

RIS innovation programmes target societal challenges through technology-based products and services with breakthrough potential. Therefore, we encourage collaboration among food R&D experts, students, academia and businesses in order to create alternative technologies, services and products that will lead the advancement of the agri-food industry. 

  • The Food R&D Expert Community: LinkedIn group that gathers selected agrifood sector professionals with business, academia and/or research backgrounds to discuss trending food innovation topics and with the aim of creating a real community, where participants can expand their professional network and connect to high profile peers from around the world, increase their industry knowledge and exchange opinions and ideas with other experts in the agrifood sector.

    For whom: agrifood sector professionals with business, academia and/or research backgrounds
