The Swiss Canton of Vaud, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), the Swiss Hospitality Management School in Lausanne (EHL Group) and Nestlé have joined forces to develop and promote food and nutrition innovation ecosystem.
The initiative was launched on 23 January 2020 at the World Economic Forum in Davos under “Swiss Food & Nutrition Valley”.
The aim is to address the key challenges of sustainable and high-quality food by attracting talent, startups and investments to Switzerland. The initiative will focus on various areas, such as nutrition, life sciences, alternative proteins, packaging science, waste management and precision agriculture.
An association is being set up in order to bring together the stakeholders of the ecosystem and lead the initiative, supported by the Federal Councilor Guy Parmelin, in charge of Economic Affairs, Education and Research.Add to Favorites
