The Global Food Security (GFS) food system resilience research call has opened and is the first call of the new ??Resilience of the UK food system in a global context?ˉ research programme. The application deadline is 4pm Tuesday 27 October 2015.

Three themes

The programme will fund high quality research projects which integrate science areas from all of the research councils involved and 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

Research proposals taking a systems approach, addressing questions at the interface between themes as well as collaborations with policy, industry and other stakeholder groups are strongly encouraged.

This call aims to support a portfolio with a good mix of both small and large-scale grants from one up to five years?ˉ duration, costing up to £3m (funded at 80% FEC).

How to apply

More information on the programme and details on how to apply can be found on the BBSRC website.
