The world’s population is expected to reach 9,7 billion by 2050. Providing adequate food supplies while at the same time preserving limited natural resources is one of the biggest challenges facing humankind.
Under the “World Food System” initiative, ETH Zurich and its partners are working on solutions across the value chain to improve global food security.
The aim is to jointly facilitate sustainable production of high-quality, healthy food products.
The “Future Food Initiative“, which ETH Zurich launched together with EPFL and industrial partners, goes one step further. The initiative aims to impact the research fields of food and nutrition and Switzerland’s industry.
