International Competition: Rethink Protein Challenge

Wageningen University & Research warmly invites BSc, MSc and PhD students worldwide to join the second edition of the ReThink Protein Challenge.

In this cutting-edge international student competition we challenge you to come up with a business idea or prototype that offers an innovative and sustainable approach to meeting protein needs and targets a specific market. It could be anything from a new source of protein, a new technology to extract proteins, to new protein foods or services that accelerate the protein transition.
