'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.
Are you a Warwick student interested in food?
Join a community of students and researchers (including the Universities of Warwick, Oxford, Reading, City University, the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), Royal Veterinary College, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine)

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.
