From challenges to solutions
Facing today’s societal and environmental challenges related to food and nutrition means urgently changing our habits and behaviors. While scientific institutions like EPFL have the education and research expertise, as well as the will to foster innovation, it still exists a gap between science and industry. The IFNC aims to bring together these two worlds, in compliance with EPFL’s three main missions: education, research and innovation.
Are you a young scientist interested in food and nutrition? The Future Food Fellowship is a EPFL and ETH Zurich postdoc program with projects targeting future food issues, such as nutrition, food production, packaging and health.
The Swiss Canton of Vaud, EPFL, EHL Group and Nestlé have joined forces to develop and promote a food and nutrition innovation ecosystem. The initiative was launched on 23 January 2020 at the World Economic Forum in Davos under “Swiss Food & Nutrition Valley”.
