WUR Student Challenge Rethink Protein

Are you committed to contribute to the protein transition? Would you like to inspire students to make a difference as well?

We would like to invite you to join a special session dedicated to the WUR Student Challenge ReThink Protein during the WUR Career Day (February 5th, 2019).

The WUR Student Challenge ReThink Protein aims to stimulate professional development of the future game changers and contribute to innovation. Students are challenged to come up with a breakthrough idea to feed 9 billion people with sustainable, healthy and affordable protein. During this session you can meet and inspire students that consider taking up the challenge. You also have the opportunity to engage with other companies and organisations that are committed to contribute to the protein transition.

The session has a speed dating format, where you can discuss the trends, challenges and opportunities regarding the protein transition with the students and other professionals and companies. As a result students might get inspired to work on an innovation that you think makes a real difference!
