New funding on offer for agrifood innovators

‘Have you got an idea for an innovative project that will create positive change in the food system?’ That is the opening question in the EIT Food Open Innovation Call 2023.

And agrifood innovators pushing Europe towards a net zero food system are being urged to apply for a share of the multi-million euro funding pot on offer, with the call providing up to €20 million in total funding for collaborative food innovation projects.

The EIT Food Open Innovation Call 2023, supported by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), is open to projects advancing one of the following goals: a net zero food system; healthier lives through food; a fully transparent, fair and resilient food system.

Lorena Savani, Interim Director of Innovation at EIT Food, said: “The EIT Food Open Innovation Call 2023 offers the chance for Europe’s brightest agrifood innovators to access the funding needed to create bold new innovations to bring about positive change across the food sector. From developing alternative protein sources to preventing food waste, we want to hear from organisations working on new products, technologies or business practices that will help secure a fairer, more transparent and resilient food system for all.” 

Those selected will receive funding of up to 70% of their project costs, with the deadline for the second application window closing on 13 April 2023. Apply now.
