'Food' is one of the University of Warwick's Global Research Priorities (GRP).
 
The Food GRP brings together issues of food production and supply, environmental and social sustainability, governance (including science and technology), social justice, nutrition and public health.

The Food GRP can provide small amounts of funding that can be used by members of the University to ‘pump-prime’ research proposals and support workshops and other events. How to apply for funding.

The University of Warwick is a Co-investigator in the 'Centre for the Evaluation of Complexity Across the Nexus' (CECAN), a £3m national research centre hosted by the University of Surrey, which brings together a unique coalition of experts to address some of the greatest issues in policy making and evaluation. CECAN will pioneer, test and promote innovative evaluation approaches and methods across nexus problem domains, such as biofuel production or climate change, where food, energy, water and environmental issues intersect.

Collaboration for Impact

Judith Batchelar OBE, Director of Sainsbury's Brand. Thursday 6th December Oculus 1.04.

The grand challenges facing our Food and Drink system are huge and varied. In addition to this the interdependencies are complex and evolving. The very nature of these challenges means that they require collective action including standards, interventions and reporting at both a global and local level. This talk explores some of the more interesting case studies in this area.

All welcome. Please register here.
