EIT Food Acceleration Network (FAN) is a startup acceleration programme for agri-food startups led by VTT. The programme has been running this summer and our Demo Day will be the ending event where we will be showing what we have been achieving with our 10 startups participating this year. All of them are tackling with some of the biggest problems in our food system like food waste, sustainable food production and traceability. Come join us for this celebration and networking with agri-food ecosystem!
