The aim of the Food Ecosystem Institute is to assist the entire Food Ecosystem to transition to the Industry 4.0 era and put in place sustainable development strategies.
Our medium-term objective is to become an acknowledged center of excellence and innovation in the fields of management and entrepreneurship for the stakeholders in the Food Ecosystem, in conjunction with partner companies, by carrying out consulting work, research projects and publishing an annual report by the Food Ecosystem Institute.
For HEG-FR students, the Institute will open many doors to a career in the food business.
