Global Food Security, in collaboration with the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council, the Economic and Social Research Council, the Natural Environment Research Council and the Scottish Government, invites applications for its second call on resilience of the UK food system in a global context. This aims to provide the evidence base to underpin the UK’s strategic approach to food security and create a more resilient food system. Interdisciplinary projects should address one or more of the following key themes:
•optimising the productivity, resilience and sustainability of agricultural systems and landscapes;
•optimising resilience of food supply chains both locally and globally;
•influencing food choice for health, sustainability and resilience at the individual and household level.
A food systems approach is encouraged, and proposals must integrate science areas from all three of the research councils involved.
The closing date for applications is 10 Nov 16.
