Workshop on Resource Efficiency

Our food system is broken and needs urgent re-shaping for how we are using the planet's resources. Deep-Dive into problems that hinder resource efficiency with today's agro-food system. Join a diverse community for a better understanding of whose problem it is, what their sources are, and their effects. Let open-innovation experts guide you to finish up with opportunity statements, that are the basis for radical solutions and ideas.

Participation will offer the possibility of submitting ideas, and receiving an incubation coaching and voucher of CHF 5'000.- to develop it further into a project, pitch it to an expert panel and be granted up to CHF 40'000,- to bring it to life.

In 2022 the workshops stimulated the development of 11 radical ideas to be funded. Join to be the next idea creator.

A reservation fee of CHF 100,- per participant is asked at registration. This will be refunded after participation. Late cancellations (1 Week prior to the event and no-shows are not eligible for refunds.)
