A new course has been designed as part of the FAIRCHAIN project for Short Food Supply Chain (SFSC) entrepreneurs interested in growing their SFSC from a local to a regional business. It will be available until 14 July 2023.
The FAIRCHAIN Food Hack will bring together students and instructors for an intensive 3-day session in which ideas for innovation all along the intermediate food supply chain are presented and refined. The focus will be on the local berry industry of Northern Sweden.
Local students will mix with international prize winners in six teams of three to work out a solution to a specific problem presented by local berry stakeholders. The local students, chosen by their faculty, will work with winners of the 2022 and 2023 editions of the FoodFactory4Us International Student Competition Game.
A local jury of berry experts will evaluate student presentations and their will be winners in several classes: most creative, most motivated, most likely for business success.
Draft agenda and more information coming soon.
