EIT Food Innovator Fellowship 2021

The Agri-Food systems are in a storm to change and adapt in response to one of the grand challenges of our era, the "Food-Health-Planet" challenge. Talents with the right skills and competencies are sought to propose winning solutions to tackle this grand challenge in its multiple dimensions. For this reason, EIT Food created the Innovator Fellowship, a programme designed for Postdoctoral Fellows and Young Professionals wishing to impact the Agri-Food systems by transforming lab-ideas into business ideas.

The critical feature of the Innovator Fellowship programme is the creation of strong and multi-disciplinary working teams, beginning with a Hackathon and continuing with the other two cornerstones of the programme:

  •  one-to-one support to the teams by expert mentors to turn initial ideas into mature business propositions.
  • two advanced training boot camps aimed to boost competencies and skills, delivered by high-level trainers.
