The MBO Food Waste Challenge

The MBO student teams had to work on a solution for one of the food waste problems. Each team created a pitch on film accompanied by a brief written explanation. The student teams were supported by a step-by-step plan for implementing ideas. This plan is called the "Doon Innovation Method" and is available in a Groen Kennisnet wiki. The teams started in September 2019 and the winner was announced on Thursday 30 January 2020.
