About EIT Food
EIT Food was created in 2016 by a partner consortium of 50 leading businesses, research centres and universities across 13 EU countries, with the aim to put Europe at the centre of transformation in food innovation and production with a central role for the consumer. For that purpose, it will, amongst others, support the creation of start-ups, develop new products and services and train students. It is funded by EIT (European Institute of Innovation & Technology), an independent EU body and the consortium partners, with a budget of €1.5 billion, spread over 7 years (https://eit.europa.eu/eit-community/eit-food).
EIT Food has its head office in Leuven (near Brussels) and also has co-location centres in Leuven, Reading (UK), Madrid, Munich and Warsaw. It has a permanent staff of around 40 people.
