Grand Finale ReThink Protein Challenge'2

At WebinarJam, Friday 25 June 2021 from 15.30 till 17.00

In January 49 teams from 41 universities in 18 countries on 5 continents have joined the ReThink Protein Challenge'2. Their mission? To come up with a cutting edge solution to accelerate protein transition.

After two selection rounds twelve Finalists remain in the game. Some of the promising ideas include a protein snack for children made in 3D printing technology from by-products of the livestock processing, protein-rich nut flours sourced from regenerative agroforestry, and a lipid ingredient identical to milk fat produced through precision yeast fermentation.

On 25 June, in a nerve-wracking finale the winning teams will finally be revealed. Six best teams will present their innovative idea to the world. The jury, consisting of high-level representatives of DSM, Lely, Bayer, Avebe, IFF and GEA, will react to the presentations and decide which teams will scoop up the €6000 prize for the prototyping and €3000 prize for the ideation category. Also the on-line audience will get a chance to cast a vote.

Tune in to get inspired by out-of-the box ideas of the future change-makers and to find out who will win the Challenge!
