Linking ESRC & NERC science outputs to the Agri-Food industry sector

Ann Bruce

Funding: Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC)

January 1 2012 – June 30 2016

The role of this NERC/ESRC Fellowship is to enable agri-food businesses to access cutting- edge NERC and ESRC research outputs to improve their capability to address key food security and sustainability challenges, and where appropriate, to inform NERC and ESRC research strategy. The intention is to raise NERC and ESRC profiles in the agri-food sector and enhance impact opportunities by accelerating access to NERC and ESRC research outputs and the funded scientific community. The Fellowship also requires feedback to NERC and ESRC on their learning and experience of interactions with the agri-food businesses.
