Spring activities and new funding opportunities from Plant2Food

After a successful kick-off, the Plant2Food collaboration platform is now ready with the programme for activities this spring. Plant2Food is also opening this year's call round for projects that unite researchers and companies in work to accelerate the development of new plant-based foods.

On 30 March, 150 participants gathered for the kick-off of the new collaborative platform, Plant2Food, which will help accelerate the development of plant-based foods. Among other things, this will be by funding projects run according to the Open Innovation in Science principles which involve both researchers and companies. The first call round opens on 1 May with the deadline for applications on 30 August.
