Food Solutions

Challenge-based learning program. It has been a novel way of creation of new food solutions for future innovation and highlights the modern way of teaching by creating together.

Food Solution is a programme for ambitious teams of students who want to be involved in solving industrial problems identified by partners. It is targeted at engaging student groups with multi-disciplinary backgrounds and of all educational levels, in working jointly on problem issues responding to agrifood challenges.

In developing industrially relevant solutions during a period of six months students will be supported in their activities by not only academics and professionals but also will be provided with coaching and mentoring services about IPR issues, business plan writing and guideliness how to pitch. After the mentoring period, teams will prepare a detailed power point presentation to present their solution to a jury.
