AgriFood Tech Night @ ETH Zuerich

ETH Zürich, Main Building, Semper-Aula, HG G 60, Rämistrasse 101, 8000 Zurich

There is no shortage of big problems facing humanity, especially in the FoodSystem. Environmental degradation, food waste, obesity, sugar-/protein-challenge and the need to feed 9 Bio people in a fair, healthy, sustainable manner, are just some challenges.
