Reversed Incubator

This Work Package aims to interlace resources set up by the ASKFOOD project in order to create a training environment which promotes innovation and entrepreneurial mindsets.
This is done by investing in an open ecosystem to connect and contaminate talents, ideas and entrepreneurial initiatives to multiply the value of the entire value chain of the food-related sectors. Together, these points aim to support an industry-driven generation of innovative start-ups.
Activities will be addressed to both implement and pilot new teaching methodologies to develop entrepreneurial skills and competences in students of food-related study programmes (e.g. Reversed Incubator) as well as to promote the assessment of the current innovative training methodologies like the “Garage Labs”. Innovative training materials will be developed and collected.

The outcomes that the Reversed Incubator Work Package is bringing forward are:

  • Business Ideas generation with a “Plug & Play” Approach, and Garage Labs;
  • The Reversed Incubator approach (Virtual Incubation and Accelerated Growth Hacking Programme) which runs with the support of the ASKFOOD Digital Business and. Training Ecosystem (DBTE) and the Talent and Idea Marketplace;
  • ASKFOOD Start Up Global Events;
  • Start-Up Portfolio and Library.

These products will be able to enhance industry-oriented professional skills in students,
teachers and industry professionals, whilst integrating science and technology skills into
