From Portugal to Türkiye – students across Europe are taking a leading role in a global movement turning universities into dynamic engines for alternative protein innovation.
The results of a £15.6 million funding call round out a bumper year for British alternative protein researchers and entrepreneurs.
This year has been pivotal for alternative proteins, particularly in Europe. Here is our round-up of GFI Europe's 2023 highlights.
How public-private partnerships are accelerating alternative proteins: a case study from the North East of England
We visited mycoprotein pioneers Quorn Foods and the Centre for Process Innovation, home to the UK’s National Industrial Biotechnology Facility, to see how effective public-private partnerships can accelerate alternative proteins.
The latest Horizon Europe deadlines are fast approaching, with calls offering exciting opportunities closing early in 2024. Our Research and Grants Manager Stella Child walks through the key calls for alternative protein researchers.
Over 50% of Europeans are eating less meat, but taste and price remain biggest barriers to plant-based uptake
More than half of European consumers are eating less meat, but taste and price remain the biggest barriers to wider adoption of plant-based foods, a major study has found.
Companies have received €1.2 million in additional funding from EIT Food to develop innovative products to reduce the cost of producing cultivated meat within the next two years.
How to overcome hurdles for plant-based and fermentation scale-up: a case study from Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park
With economic headwinds facing the food sector, conducting sorely needed research and development into healthy, sustainable foods is harder than ever for companies. We visited a pilot plant seeking to lower the hurdles for companies looking to bring such innovations from concept to consumer.
Government should invest £78 million annually in research between 2025-2030 as part of its science superpower mission.
European government funding in sustainable proteins poised to hit half a billion euros, report finds
European governments have announced a grand total of nearly half a billion euros of funding to develop sustainable proteins according to new figures released by the Good Food Institute (GFI).
