There is emerging interest and funding available for food research. Having just been successful with an EU FP7 bid, Veggieat (€300,000) working with Bonduelle in France and involving key colleagues from the Health School, DEC and the School of Tourism, there is potential to grow this area of expertise at BU within a multidisciplinary team of academics. Industry is also keen to collaborate, which helps when we need to demonstrate impact and societal relevance. On May 1 2-4pm in the Coyne LT we will have a meeting where I encourage anyone who is interested to come along and share your research passion. There will be plenty of time for networking and a tour of the new Food Management Suite will be available.
With best wishes
