Start-ups will be key for innovation in the food sector
Session chair: Annick Verween and Begoña Pérez Villarreal
Date: 14th November
Location: Main Auditorium
This session is dedicated to the RisingFoodStars, an association of handpicked high potential start-ups within EIT Food. The RisingFoodStars is a unique innovation vehicle that offers outstanding agrifoodstart-ups access to knowledge, networks and the opportunity to actively engage in EIT Food’s activities. On the other hand, as agile and swift partners, they can drive the innovations of the future within this large network. The complementary competences of start-ups lined up along the food supply chain bring unprecedented value in terms of cutting-edge technologies and innovative business models but also in terms of diversity of innovation culture and entrepreneurial mindset.
EIT Food’s vision is to put Europe at the centre of a global revolution in food innovation and production, and its value in society. EIT Food will boost the skills and entrepreneurial spirit in the sector and unlock the potential of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), which in turn will accelerate innovation, create jobs, benefit businesses and increase Europe’s competitiveness.
