4th Campaign “3D Printing in Food Industry”

3D printing technology will fundamentally change the way people deal with food in the future. Personal needs and wishes can be taken into account, food additives can be used to create health-promoting products, food waste can be reduced and more environ­mentally friendly production can be made possible.

Whether it is changed food or changed production methods that come into play, 3D printing, also called additive manufacturing, makes it possible to establish new business models here.

On the ideation platform, participants can formulate their needs and ideas in order to subsequently identify potential for optimized solutions. Participants can team up and work together on solutions to present them to our experts. The best and most promising concepts receive a grant amount of between CHF 10,000.- up to CHF 25,000.-.

Campaign Timeline & Requirements

In cooperation with the ETHSATW and the NTN Swiss Food Ecosystems, the potentials of additive manufacturing to produce food, enhanced production methods or open new supply chain options were discussed. Whether, for example, hybrid production systems, food additives, communicating robotics or protein-based binders are promising approaches needs to be questioned and examined. Current results, and the view on these future options led to the launch of the forth campaign in this area.
