'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.

Conference: Plant Variety Protection Debates: Connecting Law, Science and Social Science - 14th June 2018
The World Trade Organisation’s obligation for all members to protect plant varieties as set out in Article 27.3b of the Agreement on Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights raises debates about appropriate systems of protection.

To unpack these debates, a multidisciplinary conference to be held at the University of Warwick on 14th June 2018 will explore the process and importance of plant breeding, definition of plant varieties, conditions for protecting new plant varieties, as well as existing systems of protection.
