Offener Brief STWNO: Klimafreundliche Mensa

Ein Zusammenschluss verschiedener studentischer Initiativen am Campus Regensburg wendet sich in einem offenen Brief an das Studentenwerk Niederbayern/Oberpfalz, um in einem konstruktiven Dialog eine klimafreundliche Gestaltung des Mensabetriebs zu erwirken. Im Vorfeld wurde dafür eine umfangreiche Mensaumfrage durchgeführt.

Three of our main goals

Research example image

Stimulate open-access research that enables innovation in plant-based meat, cultivated meat, and fermentation

We aim to establish a scientific discourse around alternative protein sources, especially cultivated meat, within the open-access research community at the University of Regensburg.

Research example image

Organize events and conferences that generate awareness and excitement, propel innovation, and cultivate new ideas around alternative proteins

We aim to raise awareness and excitement as well as propel innovation regarding alternative proteins by hosting and organizing events and by participating in conferences in Regensburg and other locations.

Research example image

Build a fun, fulfilling, and inclusive community for students and researchers interested in alternative proteins

We are going to create a friendly, inclusive and vibrant community for like-minded students and researchers from our university as well as from the adjacent University of Applied Sciences.


What are alternative proteins?

Plant-Based Products

Food derived from a plant or fungus designed to replace animal-based meat and products.

Cultivated Meat

It has all the characteristics of conventional meat; it’s just made by growing only the relevant cell types (muscles cells, fat cells, connective tissue) rather than the whole animal.


Fermentation includes cultivation of any microbial species for either whole-cell biomass or a valuable fraction thereof.

The Good Food Institute

The GFI works with scientists, investors, and entrepreneurs to make groundbreaking good food a reality. They focus on cultivated meat and plant-based alternatives to animal products.
