A new student challenge for agricultural businesses and students
This November, we are together with MCH Messecenter Herning facilitating the Agromek Student Challenge at the Agromek fair at MCH. “A new and exciting project for Foodjob Nordic”, director of Foodjob Nordic Mads Kinch Clemmensen says.
Agromek is Northern Europe’s largest joint agricultural fair. The fair is held every second year at MCH Messecenter Herning, and again this year 27th to 30th of November. The fair is an important meeting place for the agricultural industry, its suppliers, customers and business partners.
The new kid in class – the student challenge concept
Foodjob Nordic has experience with hosting the FoodTech Challenge also in MCH, and now we are joining the Agromek fair as well with our Student Challenge concept.
Agromek Student Challenge is a four-day open innovation competition with the participation of 50 selected top talented students from all over the world. The event will unfold at Agromek, as the students tackle the strategic challenges posed by 10 Danish agricultural organisations.
Divided into groups of 5, the students will dive into the challenges of our 10 selected business cases. During the fair’s four-days of exhibition the students will work intensely to develop new business models, apply cutting edge ideas and concepts to find the right solution for the individual case companies. The result is evaluated by an international judging panel consisting of both academics and business leaders from the industry.
Director of Foodjob Nordic and head of recruitment of Agromek Student Challenge, Mads Kinch Clemmensen is very pleased about introducing the Student Challenge concept at the Agromek Fair: “We are really happy about this new collaboration with Agromek. In Foodjob Nordic we want to be updated on the new knowledge and tendencies in the agricultural sector”, Mads explains and continues: “For us, to be partner in Agromek Student Challenge is one way to increase our knowledge and to meet the future employees for the food industry.”
