We have a Department of Food Science business development initiative to develop new startup initiatives from our Department research staff. If you would like to connect to this or hear more please contact our consultant Lisa Mejlvang Lindgaard.
The aim of these initiatives if to ensure we have an innovative, but research based entrepreneurial environment.
Our students are increasingly trained in entrepreneurship within the food space. Partly in order to strengthen the students' competences in collaboration in an industrial setting and also to ensure they know what it’s like to work in a startup, small or medium enterprise, or a larger international company, and partly to support them to develop their own innovative ideas.
