Join EIT Food RIS Consumer Engagement Labs
EIT Food is looking for six consortia consisting of three organisations operating in the same country (scientific organisation + food retailer/producer + start-up) that would participate in EIT Food RIS Consumer Engagement Labs activity.
Consumer Engagement Labs are pre-competitive co-creation sessions carried out by a relatively coherent group of consumers (senior consumers) in a joint, physical place and limited in time, focused on the development of new product concepts. Scientists, companies and senior consumers work together to propose new food products, which subsequently are introduced to the market by the local companies.
The formal call for proposals will be launched soon, and potential applicants are encouraged to build the science-industry consortia consisting of three local organisations. Four consortia will be selected from applicants representing the following countries: Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia. Two further consortia will be selected in Greece, Italy. In 2019, the activity has already been piloted in Lithuania, Poland, Portugal and Spain.
