The Food Hack by Krinova & Formas

Be a Hacker!

Join in and be a Hacker! On Friday the 15th of March we launch the 5th annual Food Hack. New friends, lots of fun and food, tough challenges addressing this years theme: A Healthier Planet.

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

Food and food systems 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. During the event Hackers work in teams in the spirit of challenge driven open innovation to set up innovation projects boosted by the latest research and experienced mentors.


Still under construction - but this is the ever evolving program for the Food Hack 2019.

2018 – The Greater CPH Foodhack

Foodhack 2018 by DTU Skylab & Krinova was a double food hack, which means double the fun! Over the course of two weekends students, innovators, companies and food hackers worked hard to  combine food and tech in a successful combo – all in the spirit of open innovation.

2017 – Connectivity of Food

Theme for 2017 was ”Connectivity of Food”  containing several dimensions such as: what values can the new technology create? how can we cultivate, produce and consume smarter? 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.
