Be a Hacker!

Join in and set your impact in the food industry! On Friday the 15th of March we launch the 5th annual Food Hack. New friends, lots of fun and food and tough challenges!

The Food Hack is a 48hour long innovation competition and food conference for the global food community initiated by Krinova & the research council for sustainable development – Formas. This year’s theme is “A Healthier Planet” we set out in association with Formas, research council for sustainable development, to tackle challenges related to the sustainable development goals defined by the United Nations in their Agenda 2030.

Food and the food system design play a vital role in fulfilling these goals to ensure access to food, water, and renewable energy while preserving ecosystems, biodiversity, and stable and equal societies. Hackers will work in teams to set up projects boosted by the latest research and experienced mentors. You will also get access to a test kitchen. All in the spirit of challenge driven open innovation!

At the same time connectivity is wider than just technology. it´s in the boundary between different areas that many of the most exciting innovations are born.
