Presentations and Networking

Showcasing research across the University of Warwick and our four Food GRP themes, to foster collaborations between researchers from different disciplines working on related topics.

Ideas Café - 'Food for thought'

Our aim for the Ideas Café is to have conversations with those taking part and to hear their memories, thoughts, interests and ideas for improvements around our foods and food system. To start the conversation, we will have 6-8 Warwick staff and partners in the local community talk for no more than five minutes about how their work intersects with food. These ‘conversations’ can offer an idea, narrate a story, tell a personal anecdote, or offer a provocation. After these brief interventions, we will encourage participants to share their ideas by going to the various tables around the room and talking together, often in response to prompts in the form of questions or thought-provoking quotations. Each table will have paper table cloths and coloured pens so participants can write or draw their ideas right on the table.

All are welcome to attend either or both sessions - Please register by 31 January
