Food Innovation 2018

Please join us for the 2018 FoodInno Symposium: Connected Food Futures

Our mission at the FoodInno Institute is to build a collaborative environment of food innovators from all walks of life. FoodInno is a community that connects students, educators, chefs, food start-ups, farmers, and food policy makers to design the next food experience together.

UC Berkeley and Stanford University have jointly created FoodInno Symposium in 2016, and 2018 marks our 3rd annual event. The theme of the symposium this year is “Connected Food Futures.” It will be held at the Blum Center for Developing Economics at UC Berkeley. You can find more details about the schedule, speakers, and other logistics from this link.

Connected Food Futures:

Food has long linked us to our environments and to others. Now, from farm to table, technological innovation is making the global food system increasingly connected and complex. At the 2018 FoodInno Symposium, we will cultivate connections across the food supply chain to design collaborative solutions to food system challenges  Our 100+ attendees represent the most innovative and creative individuals in our food chain including farmers, chefs, designers, entrepreneurs, academics, and more from all across the world. We will gather to co-create the future of a connected food system.

Prior to the FoodInno Symposium will be a Research Workshop on Innovations in Food, Energy, Water Systems (InFEWS) from noon – 5:30 pm on Wednesday, May 16.

This research workshop is organized by the INFEWS grant by NSF, and we hope you to attend and share your research in the area. The workshop schedule can be found at this link, and you can also see the attendees (still confirming their participation though).
