Student: participate in Flavoria Innovation Festival in November

Flavoria Innovation Festival is a week-long innovation event where students get to solve real-life company challenges in multidisciplinary teams. This year the event is organized from November 13th to 17th 2023, and the student registration is now open until October 30th . The event is held in English and is open to students from universities, universities of applied sciences and vocational institutes.

Solving challenges in the food chain requires expertise from different fields. The development of the food chain’s operations also plays a significant role in the implementation of climate goals. For instance, the climate crisis and the loss of biodiversity can be partially tackled by renewing the global food system. Flavoria Innovation Festival focuses on these developments in the food chain. During the event, teams solve challenges presented directly by companies:

Rento Innovations Oy: Communicating food chain transparency to the consumers
Ruokaa läheltä: Development of the business model for the local food online store
Aromtech Oy Ltd: New applications for the by-product of berry oil extraction

HKScan Oyj: Developing a new innovative and sustainable cold cut package
