The journey of the top 10 finalists...
The EatSafe Innovation Challenge issued a call in April 2022 to students, researchers, entrepreneurs, and innovators in Nigeria and Ethiopia to share their ideas on how food supply chain innovations can be adapted and applied in traditional food markets and along value chains to resolve food safety issues. A total of 740 entries were received from Nigeria and Ethiopia. After two screenings and the Backcasting: Moving Ideas Towards Actions for Impact Workshop Sessions, 10 innovative concepts emerged as the finalists to proceed to the EatSafe National Innovation Challenge in both countries, five finalists from Nigeria and five from Ethiopia.*
Applicants are seeking the chance to participate in the Global EatSafe Innovation Challenge Grand Finale, which will take place at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) on 11-14 October 2022. Finalists will work with DTU technical experts to improve their innovations and then participate in a final global pitch competition with the chance to win $10,000 grand prize.
