The EIT FAN is the interface that enables start-ups to collaborate with the key industry players with the aim of bringing innovation to life.

Being a part of FAN allows innovators to be part of a rich network of businesses and research institutions and make crucial relationships that will help fast-track your innovative solution for a better food system. It will enable access to facilities such as labs, pilot sites, maker spaces, agricultural land as well as financial support to pilot technology for selected start-ups. Being a part of FAN will help innovators to build skills, benefit from mentoring and gain exposure to markets, potential customers, investors and media and receive tailored support to raise your seed or series A investment round.
