What is Oxford University Doing?

Researchers at Oxford University are studying many aspects of the food system that will address the issues discussed. We give some examples below:

  • How to improve crop yields through nutrient and water uptake, improving the ability to acquire water and nutrients that are in short supply - Liam Dolan
  • How effective food labelling is at encouraging people to eat a healthy diet - Mike Rayner
  • The effects of expanded agriculture on local biodiversity - Kathy Willis
  • Ways to improve the welfare of broiler chickens by assessing the effects of stocking density on the birds’ health - Marian Dawkins
  • Food Climate Research Network - Tara Garnett
