Applications call for EIT Food Innovator Fellowship 2021. The objective of EIT Food Innovator Fellowship is to empower talents to co-create, address, and gain experiences on excellent ideas capable of bringing their careers a step further, and foster innovators ready to respond to global food challenges.
Global challenges in the Agri-Food systems require a mind-shift and a thrilling change in the awareness and competencies of talents: the new generation of entrepreneurs plays a key role in solving the planet’s food-related issues.
The future innovative leaders of the Agri-Food system need a new set of competencies beyond those acquired in research and academic environments – they require a proficiency that allows them to propose, manage, implement, and lead interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary research and innovation projects, to be able to transform lab-ideas into business ideas.
EIT Food INNOVATOR FELLOWSHIP aims at identifying talents worldwide with creative and innovative potential, wishing to expand their skill repertoire through advanced training for the development of an innovative idea with significant impact in the food system.
EIT Food Innovator Fellowship is designed to offer you a highly stimulating and creative six-months program coupled with the acquisition of key skills and mentoring to translate an idea in a business idea. After an evaluation step, aiming to select the best talents/ideas, the talents will participate in a Foodathon.
The Foodathon will be an immersive, competitive; and stimulating experience where you will form a team with the best, most exciting ideas. Furthermore, during the Foodathon you will be able to boost and diversify your career path; creating new networks and improving their competencies/skills.
The Foodathon will serve to form and consolidate teams, to co-create and further develop the best ideas proposed by the participants in a multi/interdisciplinary setting, with one-to-one mentoring. The newly created teams should demonstrate complementarities and synergy. The best teams will be selected at the end of the Foodathon; after pitching their ideas in front of an evaluation committee. The selected teams will win the next step of the journey.
If you have an idea that may impact the Food system; and you are passionate about tackling sustainability issues, here are your challenges
