Innovative, sustainable food concept
The Dutch Ministry of Defence is looking for a new food concept for military on training and missions. Your challenge is to design a concept that is sustainable, satisfactory for the military and suits with the food-requirements set by the Ministry of Defence. You will dive into the problem with a 2 day kick-off event on 12 and 13 February and collaborate with students from Eindhoven and Wageningen on this real-life problem touching on the fields of logistics, sustainability, design, experience and health. During the course, you will work in a student team, creating ideas, pitching solutions and working towards an end product. The grand finale is planned in Utrecht on 25 June.
