UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) in partnership with the Government have recently announced a £25 million call for research to fundamentally transform the UK food system, with a key focus on healthy people and a healthy natural environment. Proposals are invited for interdisciplinary research consortia to take a systems approach, linking healthy and accessible diets with sustainable food production and supply to help drive food system transformation. This programme aims to address health, environmental and social challenges simultaneously, bringing together researchers, policymakers, business and civil society to develop evidence for multi-pronged and simultaneous action across the food system.
Application deadline: 26 November 2019, 16:00.
Global Food Security Programme (GFS) will be holding a Transforming the UK food system Webinar on Tuesday 5 November from 14:00 – 15:30.
The webinar aims to answer questions and provide background information on the call. Any interested academic or stakeholder that eligible to apply for the call can register their interest by emailing Food Systems SPF, email@example.com. Participation in the webinar is not a prerequisite for submitting a bid.
