Summer School: Innovating the joy of eating for healthy ageing

Eating and lifestyle habits are modifiable behaviours that can have a huge impact on health. INJOY trains participants to develop their own commercially viable solutions that support healthier lifestyles.


INJOY empowers entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs and innovators to develop products and services that help to modify eating and lifestyle habits, increase functionality and promote healthy ageing. Nutrition over our lifespan plays a direct role in age-related decline. This third edition of INJOY’s ten-day training, which will be held online, highlights the importance of living better, not just living longer. Working individually or with entrepreneurial teams, students receive inputs on how to validate their own idea, structure an opportunity and pitch their projects before an investors jury. Alongside this entrepreneurship training, students are given a foundation of nutrition science and mentorship thanks to the collaboration with EIT Health Alumni Network.
