Event description

Students have an outsized influence on shaping the academic ecosystem from the inside-out, but their power is largely untapped. The Alt Protein Project is a global community of student groups that seeks to change that. We inspire, train, and empower students to establish their universities as hubs for alternative protein research, education, and innovation and—in so doing—we propel students to the forefront of the alternative protein movement. Read more about our community and apply to join.

If you have any questions, join our information sessions for interested student organizers on February 15 to learn more about what it takes to join this vibrant community of leaders and change-makers.
