EIT Food

General information:

EIT Food`s vision is to become the leading European initiative that empowers innovators and entrepreneurs to develop world-class solutions to create growth and jobs. EIT Food is a European Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC), part of the EIT, which was set up to transform our food ecosystem. By connecting consumers with businesses, start-ups, researchers and students from across Europe, EIT Food supports innovative and economically sustainable initiatives, which improve our health, our access to quality food, and our environment.

In our workshop, the Director of the Co-Location-Centre of central Europe and the directors of education and innovation will give an introduction to EIT Food, and different projects within the EIT Food network will be presented. In the end, a round table will give the opportunity for questions and discussion.


  • Introduction to EIT Food – Overview (CLC Central Director)
  • Marten van der Kamp (Director of education, EIT Food)
  • Thorsten König (Director of Innovation)
  • Presentation of 4 to 5 projects
  • Round table with all speakers

Maximum number of participants: 50 (first come first serve basis). Free access but online registration is mandatory.
