Invention Summer Camp 2020:

The Future of Food & Beverage @WUR

November 6th 2020

In the years to come a lot of developments on the Campus will take place. The Dialogue Centre and third educational building will be opened, as well as Plus Ultra II. Companies, like Unilever, settle down on Wageningen Campus.

More and more students, employees and visitors use Campus facilities for eating and drinking. Food and beverage are subject to major changes in the field of sustainability, zero waste, circularity, healthy products, individual preferences and diets, hospitality, technological innovation, etc. As WUR aims to set a new vision on Food and Beverage for the next 5 years and due to expiring contracts with the current catering partners we’re on the quest for students and employees who want to join our 1-day event Invention Summer Camp 2020 on Friday November 6th! Come up with your brilliant ideas on the Future of Food & Beverage @WUR and take the opportunity to contribute to eating and drinking facilities in the years to come!

Do you have a vision or ideas on our main topics of the Future of Food & Beverage @WUR:

  • Happy, healthy & fit lifestyle
  • Personalized and “tailor made” eating (i.e. vegan/flex/biological, etc)
  • Sustainability, circularity, minimal waste
  • Hospitality and distinctive catering concepts
  • Technological innovation?

Join your WUR colleagues and students and experience a complete day of brainstorming, working and shaping your ideas. Experts in the field of food, hospitality, sustainability and business will help your group. Enjoy our programme with inspiring lectures and workshops!
