Agri-technology and Food Security
A group of academics across Faculties are developing a new and distinctive inter-disciplinary theme to consolidate, promote and grow the University’s research expertise in food, forestry and biofuel production.
This will align with one of RCUK’s recently identified ‘eight great technologies for the future’: Agri-technology.
With a focus on future land-use technologies, our aim is to become a leader in both the development of new innovations and practices and policy research into agri-tech regulation and governance. The group now working on collaborative agreements and projects with FERA, hosting a high profile visit last earlier this month.
