An interactive exhibit in the main building of the ETH Zurich explores this topic from five different perspectives. At the opening evening, Prof. Mathys gave a short public address about research needs and opportunities around insects as food and the need to properly understand the use of the term “sustainability” when describing this emerging protein source.

The exhibit runs from 03-11 March and is a project of reatch - research and technology in Switzerland, in partner with Sustainability Week 2017.
