What is the Food & Nutrition Innovation Institute?
The mission of the Food and Nutrition Innovation Institute at the Friedman School is to foster a robust, science-driven ecosystem of food, agricultural, and wellness innovation and entrepreneurship for a healthier, equitable, and sustainable food system. Activities conceived or supported through the Food and Innovation Institute are driven by the Innovation Council, faculty, students, policy makers, and other external stakeholders.
The Institute is hosted by the Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University, focused on generating trusted science, educating future leaders, and producing real world impact in nutrition science and policy. The Friedman School engages expertise, perspectives, and resources from diverse sectors in order to create and apply dynamic, interdisciplinary solutions to the most pressing challenges in nutrition science and policy.
