Project Description

EIT Food is Europe’s leading food innovation initiative, with the aim to create a sustainable and future-proof food sector.

The initiative is made up of a consortium of key industry players, start-ups, research centres and universities from across Europe. It is one of six Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KIC) established by the European Institute for Innovation & Technology, an independent EU body set up in 2008 to promote innovation and entrepreneurship across Europe.

EIT Food contributes to the project through identification of trends, best cases and breakthroughs in food systems and related research and investment (R&I) policy frameworks as well as by developing guidelines and an impact monitoring tool for R&I.

EIT Food collaborates closely with consumers to develop new knowledge and technology-based products and services, that will ultimately deliver a healthier lifestyle for all European citizens.
