Food GRP

'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.
