A summer school for sustainable, climate-friendly alternative protein solutions.
Overview: Students will be taught how new and alternative proteins, like the plant, cell and insect-based proteins, can be integrated with our food systems. You will work and be coached in teams on entrepreneurial capacity training. You will end up with new business ideas that will be pitched in front of a professional jury. Critical questions on how to develop a sustainable future food system will be addressed. How can new and alternative food proteins be integrated with our food systems? What are the technological obstacles, and what are the regulatory and consumer/market-related barriers? How do we design and develop alternative proteins and how can we develop and formulate alternative protein-based food products.
At the final pitch event, prizes will be awarded to the best project teams.
