Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the competition may be held online.

Teams will have the opportunity to meet and network with other innovators from across the globe.

Two winners will be chosen from each national competition in Ethiopia and Nigeria to participate in the Global EatSafe Innovation Challenge Final in Denmark in October.

Shortlisted applicants from each National EatSafe Innovation Challenge will be announced and promoted in an online (or in-person depending on Covid-19 restrictions) event.

In the first stage, 80 longlisted applicants will receive technical support and participate in two online-facilitated workshops to refine their idea facilitated by the IFSS portal team.

In the second stage, ten shortlisted applicants will participate in the Global EatSafe Innovation Challenge Virtual Mentorship Programme (July-August 2022) and will receive technical support to refine their idea before the final national competition event, including an online design workshop and one-to-one mentoring with a local food safety expert.

The application deadline is the 30th of April 2022 at 11:00 Nigeria time / 13:00 Ethiopia time / 12:00 CEST.
