Students from around the world enrolled at further and higher education institutions have an opportunity to help tackle the issue of food security.

The 2017 Queen’s International Innovation Challenge, led by Canada’s Queen’s University, wants “students to use their analytics skills and creativity to solve one of the most pressing issues of the 21st century – Food Security,” the competition website states.

Students are required to form teams and identify a problem, which they then solve during the challenge period – from 6 October to 24 November.

The opening event promoting the challenge will be held in Toronto this Friday (6 October). It will also be recorded and available on the project’s Facebook page.

The top five teams will be invited to the finale in Toronto on November 24.
