FoodLab facility

The Skylab FoodLab is an interdisciplinary space for food system innovation.

We believe that everyone has a relationship to food, and that everyone in the world is affected by the way in which food is designed, produced, distributed and consumed. We use food as a multifunctional tool to address complex issues that face our world.

Our mission is to provide our community of innovators a supportive environment where ideas run wild. We promote diversity and celebrate failure as necessary steps for innovation. We encourage critical discussions. We stand for progress, for moving society ahead, for inspiring others. We are makers. We are bound by common values of honesty, transparency, ethics and commitment towards what we do.

How to get involved with FoodLab
Our facility can host product development activities, events, workshops and interdisciplinary lectures.

DTU students and young entrepreneurs working in food systems (e.g. food product development, food-tech, agro-tech, food systems change), have free access to the FoodLab facility.

We act and inspire locally and internationally. We are interested in establishing future collaborations and partnerships with innovators, universities and organizations, working in the field of sustainable development and food system change.

Equipment and technical support
The DTU Skylab FoodLab has various equipment for experimenting with and testing food ingredients, as well as space to work and prototype solutions across the entire food system.

We work across the different workshops available at Skylab, so if there is a need to build something or create something that is not a food prototype, we support with technical skills and know how.
