We are announcing the 15 ProteinX 2021 Awards Finalists (not winners). Winners ceremony will take place during the proteinX Symposium June 08-10, 2021
ProteinX is a Silicon Valley-based nonprofit foundation focused on fostering innovation in next-gen proteins.
Our mission is to provide students and scientists resources to foster scientifically meaningful, potentially transformative, innovation and education projects for the future of food, and its contribution to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. A collaborative effort between academia, industry, and governmental agencies.
In a world where planet earth will be challenged to feed 10B people by 2050. And a world where the food system is no longer sustainable, where agriculture and land use account for 25-30% of global emissions, Humankind is urged to rethink how to make products we've traditionally derived from animals.
To shift the perception and buying habits that sustainable = normal, consumers need a comprehensive sustainable product offering
ProteinX collaborates with organizations, educational institutes, companies, cities, nations and citizens around the globe, to shaping future-back a circular Food, Ag and Beverage economy.
