The Food Standards Agency has issued a call for researchers interested in studying food system resilience. Entitled ‘Resilience of the UK food system in a global context,’ the research programme will fund high quality research projects which integrate science areas from all of the research councils involved and which address one or more of the following interlinked themes:
- Optimising the productivity, resilience and sustainability of agricultural systems (includes aquaculture but wild capture fisheries) 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.
The application deadline for researchers is 4pm Tuesday 27 October 2015.
