How will we act?

During the workshop we will carry out tasks in teams of five. This will ensure a lot of mutual inspiration. If you don’t have a team, we will guarantee you a good integration with others before starting the activity.

By taking part in Challenge Labs you will meet many international experts in the field of innovation design and the food industry. By consulting with mentors, you will get the opportunity to test your ideas at every stage of their implementation.

In teams we want to bring together participants from different areas of expertise and specialization, but from one country. This gives us a look at our ideas from different perspectives. Expect people on site who are interested in issues from engineering, psychology, IT or marketing.

This means that we immediately test the concepts and ideas developed. Instead of creating long presentations and descriptions of ideas, we go into the field and check with real users how they evaluate our approach.
