InnoFood & co is back for a 2nd edition on 15 June 2023! Thanks to your loyalty and support, we are happy to be able to introduce you once again to both local and global initiatives and to seize the opportunities for innovation and collaboration that are available to you.
The societal and environmental challenges related to food are numerous and complex. They need to be tackled in a global way and require profound changes from all actors; academic, economic, political and society, hence the notion of “food systems”.
Everything is connected, and in order to find a sustainable and beneficial balance for all, it is necessary to conceive the future of our food all together. The canton of Fribourg is a pioneer in this field with its recent agri-food strategy, which advocates a systemic, collaborative and multidisciplinary approach to innovation.
CONNECT DISCOVER CO-CREATE
This 2nd edition is marked by the collaboration with Fribourg Ville du Goût. This is why we welcome you to the BCF Arena to offer you culinary experiences while discovering innovative themes through exciting workshops and presentations.
This year, Bruno Rossignol will do us the honour of being our keynote speaker. Bruno is the Director of Catering and Retail at EPFL and has implemented a revolutionary strategy on campus. He will share with us the behind-the-scenes story of this project during the first part of the event.
In the second part, renowned experts from academia, startups and industry will share their vision and perspectives on two main topics during parallel sessions: Technology for the entire food value chain and What will tomorrow’s plate look like? There will also be workshops that will appeal to all your senses and creativity!
As always, the emphasis will be on proximity and exchange, notably through networking opportunities throughout the day.
New this year: all lectures will be translated simultaneously into French and German!
We look forward to welcoming you to the 2nd edition of InnoFood & co!
