Ideas Generation Program

In the framework of HIGHER, the UAB Research Park (PRUAB) organizes a program to address the challenges of smart food involving the society, the research community, the industry and the administration, following the innovation model of the quadruple helix.

The initiative will include a laboratory of ideas, un entrepreneurship program and a final stage of prototype and validation of the solutions at the UAB Open Labs, the network of open innovation spaces of the University.

Smart Food challenges

Smart food is understood as food based on healthy foods through personal awareness. They are foods that improve their quality through the application of new technologies. Innovations can be implemented in the production, processing, packaging or consumption of the whole food industry.

In this context, scientific community has defined four challenges in this field:

  • Reduction of food waste
  • Reduction of plastics in the different stages of the agri-food chain
  • Decrease the use of antibiotics in livestock production
  • Personalized nutrition


If you want to participate in the 10th edition of the Ideas Generation Program, you can fill out this form. The inscriptions will remain open until October 1, 2019.
