UQ students across all disciplines are encouraged to join the Ventures Industry Challenge, and to develop a real-world solution to a real-world problem.

In collaboration with OzHarvest, Australia’s leading food rescue organisation, this year’s challenge focuses on the problems and opportunities surrounding food waste.

Specifically, students will explore how Australia can achieve its national target of halving food waste by 2030 in-line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and how society can become more environmentally sustainable and economically resilient.

Interested? Join us at the information session either in-person or online to learn more about the program and how you can get involved!
