Do you have an innovative idea within Sustainable nutrition – applications to Greenhouse idea accelerator are accepted until March 31.

Invitation by Lantmännen in co-operation with Urban Mill: 

How can we challenge the way we produce and eat food to resolve two of the world’s most urgent problems: climate change and increasing health issues?

We are facing major challenges, both in terms of the way we produce food and how we consume it. Our planet must feed a growing population, and at the same time sustainability challenges and health problems related to the food we put on our plates are increasing globally. A development that we at Lantmännen are convinced that we can change. Together.

Do you have fresh insight on sustainable nutrition to complement our expertise? An excellent idea for a new plant-based product? An unexplored solution for using manufacturing process sidestreams adding value to more healthier products? Maybe a business model to change consumer behavior towards more sustainable way? Or maybe a breakthrough insight for oat or wholegrain?  

Take the chance and apply to the Greenhouse now! Application period ends 31st of March 2021.

Kumppanimme TEK tiedottaa:

Tervetuloa keskustelemaan tekniikan alan yliopistokoulutuksen tulevaisuudesta TEKin ja alan yliopistojen kanssa #FPEE2021-webinaariin!

Tervetuloa keskustelemaan hyvinvoinnista ja koronan vaikutuksista opetukseen sekä tekniikan alan yliopistokoulutuksen muista ajankohtaisista kysymyksistä TEKin ja tekniikan alan yliopistojen kanssa. Tilaisuudessa julkistetaan myös TEKin ja tekniikan alan yliopistojen yhteisen TEK Graduate Survey -palautekyselyn tulokset vuodelta 2020.
