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 transform their universities into engines 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 one of our information sessions for interested student organizers on February 16th to learn more about what it takes to join this vibrant community of leaders and change-makers. We offer two sessions to help accommodate different time zones so choose whichever one works best for you as we’ll cover the same topic in both sessions.

  • Register here for the February 16th information session at 8 pm EST / 5 pm PST.
  • If that time is not convenient for you, we also offer another information session on February 16th at 11 am EST / 8 am PST. You can register here for that one.
