30. marts @ 9:30 – 16:00
Researchers from universities and the food industry are joining forces to help each other accelerate the transition to a more plant-based human diet. We call this intersectoral project Plant2Food.
Plant2Food’s mission is to accelerate the transition to a more plant-based diet. We aim to do this by creating the knowledge foundations for developing new nutritious, tasty and affordable alternatives to animal-based foods. The Plant2Food project itself funds patent-free fundamental research projects. By removing patents and sharing all data and knowledge openly, we believe that we can speed up the green transition significantly because everyone can use, resuse or repurpose the knowledge into downstream innovation projects.
On 30 March 2023, you can join our kick-off event and learn more about Plant2Food and find new potential collaborators. You can SIGN-UP here right away, or you can read more about the event below and register afterwards.
Join our kick-off event to learn more about the Plant2Food project and how we will fund open university-industry collaborations. You’ll get to know more about the concept, hear inspirational talks and you’ll have time for networking with potential new collaborations from both academia and industry. You can read more about the Plant2Food project on our website.
