Foodtech scouting and shortlist

Foodtech executive workshop

The FoodTech workshops bring together leaders from across different segments of the food and beverage industry, particularly those who have most experience and interest in the vast array of new technological solutions and business models which have been entering the food market over the past years. They aim to define strategic R&D guidelines for the innovation projects, the scouting and research projects of a future LifestyleTech Competence Center, as well as scope and best practices for co-innovation strategies.

The workshops aim to identify the innovation requirements between and within companies in the sector, build bridges across different economic areas, including between investors and brands/retailers/manufacturers and also to connect all these businesses with upcoming and valid start-ups/scale-ups. The workshops represents an initial step towards the development of a LifestyleTech Competence Center, which would benefit all industry stakeholders within Switzerland and beyond.
