The 3rd Edition of the International Food Design and Food Studies Conference, Experiencing and Envisioning Food: Designing for Change, has partnered with well-known food brands and food industry leaders to choose the best projects applying to our “food design for next-generation food systems” call for projects.

With a clear goal in mind, which is to get food designers and the food industry to work together, we have defined in collaboration with our partners the following interest areas that aim to inspire food design applications in real and concrete projects, that contribute to pave the way and become an inspiration to create next-generation food systems.

Aligned with the theme of the 3rd International Food Design and Food Studies Conference, Experiencing and Envisioning Food: Designing for Change, we challenge designers, researchers, chefs, professionals of food-related areas to submit their projects.
The four areas of interest are:

1. Next Generation of Consumers (conscious eating; reducing food waste; building trust; home food safety; intelligent kitchen appliances; nutrition aid and technologies…);

2. Next Generation of Food Brands (sustainability checklist; new uses of ancient ingredients; plant-based products; clean labels; honest branding; transparency; packaging-free foods; increasing new and equitable sustainable diets…);

3. Next Generation of Restaurants (new business models; growing our own food (indoor farming, aquaculture), local foods; plant-based menus; reducing food waste…)

4. Next Generation of Producers (novel farming systems (indoor, aquaculture, insects, seaweed…) reduce food lost; increase efficiency and working conditions…)

Projects can be edible products, objects of use or communication, spaces, processes, services or experiences related to the proposed areas. We welcome participants who present their projects regardless of being prototypes, projects in progress, concluded or commercialized.
