Are you a novice researcher, PhD student, post-doc or at the beginning of your research career? Does your work focus on food systems in low-income contexts? Then do not miss out on this great opportunity to sharpen and enrich your research and network with peers.

With hunger and malnutrition on the rise and the growing challenges of unsustainable food systems, there is a need for a platform for researchers to discuss how to sharpen the research in relation to policy and practice. This workshop aims to help young researchers to connect their own research to policy and societal relevance. Young researchers will benefit from cross-disciplinary discussions and feedback from senior colleagues and policy experts.

The workshop will be organised around two relevant themes that are closely interlinked. Young researchers will work closely with senior researchers in each theme.

Theme 1: Food Security and Food Sovereignty

Theme 2: Climate-Friendly Food Systems

The Swedish International Agriculture Network Initiative, SIANI is an open and inclusive network that supports and promotes multisector dialogue and action around a vision of sustainable agriculture for food security, improving nutrition and the eradication of hunger.
