Goals of the Programme

●  To act as a focal point for food systems research at the University of Oxford, allowing people inside and outside the University to discover what food-related research is going on at Oxford;

●  To facilitate solution-orientated research to address major food system challenges;

●  To facilitate interactions between Oxford researchers (and those at other institutions) with policy makers in government, international organisations, the private sector and the NGO community;

●  To help build interest in this area amongst Oxford’s undergraduate and postgraduate students.
