Transforming the UK food system for healthy people and a healthy environment: Funding Call and Workshops
UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) will shortly announce a call for research to fundamentally transform the UK food system, by placing healthy people and a healthy natural environment at its centre. Proposals will be invited for interdisciplinary consortia to take a food systems approach, linking healthy and accessible diets with sustainable food production and supply to help drive food system transformation.
This challenge will require collaboration across multiple disciplines and across multiple stakeholders, for example government, industry and civil society. This programme will address health, environmental and social challenges simultaneously, and will bring together researchers and stakeholders to provide evidence for multi-pronged and simultaneous action across the food system.
Announcement of Call will be launched in the coming weeks.
Two workshops will be held to communicate more details about the research call and facilitate networking.
- Manchester (city centre) Monday 21st October
- London (central) Friday 25th October
