Roberto has carved out an interesting niche for himself in the field of innovation. Since 2014 Roberto has been living in Denmark, working inside and outside of the university environment. He has worked side-by-side with scientists, entrepreneurs and thought leaders to further the application of food-related innovation in a real-world context and to encourage hands-on learning. In 2018 he designed and opened the DTU Skylab FoodLab. With his new interdisciplinary FoodLab, Roberto builds bridges between disciplines using food as a vehicle to address grand global challenges and support non-food related fields with inspirational ideas for projects, business ideas and paradigm shifts. A constant openness towards learning from others and expanding his network has led Roberto to push the limits of food science technology and human connections. He is the former head of R&D of the Nordic Food Lab, open
source laboratory founded by Rene Redzepi of restaurant Noma.
