Dear SAH Members,

We are very pleased to invite you to the 4th edition of EIT Food`s Annual Event Let`s Get Real About Food. The event is scheduled to take place on 17-18 October 2022 at Event Lounge, Brussels, in an in-person format.

Our Annual Event brings together our community of partners and external agri-food stakeholders, to shape a common vision and foster collaboration to accelerate the transition to a food system that sustains our society and our planet. At this 4th edition, participants will have an opportunity to meet and network with stakeholders, experts and industry peers from across the entire food value chain, to take part in interactive sessions on the new opportunities for open calls for proposals and mission programmes, and engage in co-creation, cooperation, and building new relationships during a special programme with discussions, panel sessions, showcase segments, and matchmaking.

The opening plenary sessions, taking place in the morning of the first day, will focus on the power of a community to create change and to respond to the current challenges of our food system. Lukas Visek, Member of the Cabinet of EU Commission Executive Vice-President Frans Timmermans, Roberta Bosurgi, CEO at European Venture Philanthropy Association (EVPA) and Angelo Riccaboni, Professor and Chair of PRIMA Foundation, will be delivering the opening keynote speeches.

In the afternoon, the event will zoom on specific innovative solutions and initiatives with a community pitching, followed by a breakout session to present projects and solutions and discuss how we can accelerate them to reach the EIT Food`s missions:

·       Net Zero Food Systems

·       Healthier lives through food,

·       Transparent, Resilient and Fair Food Systems.

On the second day, we will have an array of interactive parallel sessions to present EIT Food open calls and update our partners and external agri-food stakeholders on different opportunities.

We are pleased to confirm that EU institutions and government representatives would be able to apply for complimentary/free registration and we can also offer a  50% discount on our tickets to other stakeholders with the use of promotional code: EITFOODANNUAL202250.

We very much hope that you can join us in Brussels for this event and look forward to hearing from you in due course.


Yours sincerely,


Saskia Nuijten,
