EIT Food

The European Institute on Innovation and Technology (EIT) has launched a new community, EIT Food, consisting of a Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC) with the objective of guaranteeing a global food value chain that is sustainable and climate resistant.

The European consortium FoodConnects was the winner of the Food4Future call that will finally lead the EIT Food. This consortium brings together leading companies such as PepsiCo, Nestlé, Bosch and Siemens, as well as startups such as AI Talentum through the RisingFoodStars Club, universities and scientific partners, to cover the entire value chain of the food sector.

The objective of this consortium is to transform the way in which society as a whole produces, distributes and consumes our food.

During the next 7 years, the partners will invest about 1,200 million euros, to which will be added another 400 financed by the EIT Food.

RisingFoodStars Club

Artificial Intelligence Talentum was invited to join the RisingFoodStars Club, an innovation vehicle whose objective is to accelerate the adoption of new technologies in the field of food production.

RisingFoodStars club is another partner of the consortium, which brings together 50 startups with innovative technologies aligned with the mission of using their solutions to meet the socio-economic challenges of the food industry. Together, they will promote research, innovation and technology projects at the European level, while working to build industrial networks in the agriculture and food sectors.
