MassChallenge Switzerland's Sustainable Food Systems Challenge

Technology solutions to reduce the CO2 footprint of food production, distribution & disposal. Including, but not only covering:

Food Production: Using renewable energy on farms; Solutions for regenerative farming; Reducing emissions in agricultural production (ie Fewer chemicals for fertilization & crop protection; More organic fertilizer); Access to raw materials with lower CO2 impact (at the right cost) through new and more efficient agricultural practices; Alternatives to naturally grown products (i.e. fermentation based solutions vs farming); Substitution of environmentally harmful products (Production of dairy-alternative proteins, drinks or powder; Production and processing of cell based meat alternatives)

Distribution: Technologies to promote longer shelf life of products to reduce waste (e.g. antimicriobial)

Disposal: Better manure management; Use of biomass for energy production productivity increase

Application Deadline: July 31, 2020, 12:00 (GMT+8)
