Food Life Centre Lab

An innovation hub for sustainable regional food supply based on a decentralisation concept for food distribution and education







About the ‘Food Life Centre’ Lab

The Berlin FoodSHIFT Accelerator Lab will establish an Urban Food Hub prototype (Ernährungshof) in the former airport building Tempelhof as a lighthouse project for the food system transition. It will provide space for food production, trade/sharing, preparation, consumption, education and future research that creates new jobs.


It will highlight the needs of diverse food chain actors within urban society and aims to improve political support, power structures and support measures leading to governance innovation. The Lab will empower local communities and citizens with open access to new infrastructures and knowledge.
