Research Themes

In order to further develop the cross disciplinary working that is necessary to meet the global food security challenge, our work is organised into three themes:

Food Chain and Health_apples

The strategy of the Food Chain and Health theme is to link work on agricultural processes targeted at improving product quality, with a greater understanding of consumer behaviour and human biology, to deliver health benefits for society through improved nutrition.



Biodiversity and the Agri-environment _bee_

The strategy of the Biodiversity and the Agri-environment theme is to link improved understanding of agro-ecology and rural environmental management to improve the ecosystem services for and from agricultural systems.



Sustainable Food Systems Greenhouse_heatlamps

Sustainable Food Systems links improved understanding of the whole of the food chain to increase efficiency and sustainability in terms of mitigation of environmental harm, adaptation to environmental change, and the avoidance of waste.
