Professor Sarah Bridle, Principle Investigator for the STFC Food Network+, describes the launch of the Network and its ambitions to apply the skills and facilities of the Science and Technology Facilities Council to tackling the challenges facing food supply. The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Food Network+ (SFN) was created in order to bring together STFC researchers and facilities with research and industry in the agrifood sector. The SFN is building an interdisciplinary community working to provide a sustainable, secure supply of safe, nutritious, and affordable high-quality food using less land, with reduced inputs, and in the context of global climate change and declining natural resources. The SFN is highlighting and developing key opportunities for the STFC community to make a meaningful contribution to the food system - from sustainable intensification, through building resilience in supply chains to novel technologies to engage consumers and help change behaviour and improve nutrition. The STFC Food collaborations and research projects working towards safe, sustainable food systems both in the UK and developing countries. • To enhance the impact of STFC/food interdisciplinary collaborations by encouraging co-design with the non-academic sector.
