The winner and runner-up of the GFS Speak Up for Food Security science communication competition presented ‘The Problem with Food’ alongside Maia Elliott (GFS) at the popular science festival earlier this month.
This month experts came together for the second meeting of the crop breeding and climate modelling working group. The aim of the working group is to identify ways to protect our food supply in the face of a changing climate and extreme weather.
As the climate crisis escalates, so will its impacts on crop production. To protect our food supply in the face of a changing climate and extreme weather, GFS has launched a working group to improve communication and information sharing between crop breeders and climate modellers.
The Global Food Security programme has published a new horizon scanning report based on the last Science Advisory Group meeting. It highlights the latest contextual developments and research advances relevant to the food system to provide a list of top priority research questions.
The Global Food Security programme has launched a new science communication competition to equip UKRI early-stage researchers with the communication skills to propose and facilitate the necessary changes to transform our food system for health and sustainability.
The GFS-FSR programme aims to support truly interdisciplinary projects that integrate science areas from all of the research councils involved (BBSRC, NERC, ESRC, and Scottish Government) in order to provide the evidence base to underpin the UK’s strategic approach to food security and create a more resource efficient and resilient food system in a changing world.
