Have your ever wondered why you somehow never manage to keep up with a fitness routine no matter how many new year’s resolutions you plan? Why your job or projects don’t excite you even though technically you would have multiple reasons to like it? Have you, as a manager, wondered how you can create a good team and what you can do to motivate your employees the right way?
What will we eat in 2050? How and where we will grow our food? How do the food experience and the food culture of the future look like?
To answer these questions, the Austrian Chamber of Commerce (WKO) organized the Future of Food Event that took place in Vienna on September 30th. The team of 1030 Innovation was happy to help WKO curate the event, develop a program for the evening and moderate it.
In search of new inspiration, our team visited the Ars Electronica Festival 2019 that takes place in Linz. Every year, thousands of visitors come from different countries to see art installations, exhibitions and to gain insights in the new tech developments. The event focuses on current trends as well as possible future scenarios, in context of a possible impact on our lives. Ars Electronica is spread throughout the entire city inviting its visitors to learn more about art, digital solutions, innovation, technology, social impact and way more.
The impact of our diet is more important that many of us think. An insufficient diet does not only cause weight extremes, it can also lead to many diseases, including different types of cancer, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease and many more. Recent studies have shown that certain dietary interventions may be more effective than drug treatments. Obesity, for example, is a classic example.

Today, we decided to take a look at a protein source that might be quite unexpected for many – algae.
