DTU FoodLab

DTU FoodLab

Opened in 2018, the FoodLab is the new member of the Skylab family. The FoodLab is an interdisciplinary space for food innovation. We enable applied learning and entrepreneurship by focusing on student innovation and collaboration with public and private sectors. Ideas and projects are tested in close cooperation with fellow students, businesses, educators, researchers, policy makers, artists and chefs.

Alternative and stimulation learning environment
By constructing an alternative and stimulating learning environment, we use food as a multifunctional tool to address complex issues related to the food systems. We promote fearless development of future human-centered technologies, food products, and sustainable solutions to global challenges.

Our mission
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.

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.

Collaboration and partnerships
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.

The FoodLab facility
Our facility can host product development activities, events, workshops and interdisciplinary lectures.

DTU students and young entrepreneurs working in the field of food, food tech and Agro-tech, have free access to the FoodLab facility.

If you are living outside of Denmark, you can apply to our international internship.

The list of our activities, current projects and programs will be online soon.
