The N8 AgriFood Resilience programme was created to tackle the challenges facing the future of food systems in a collaborative, multidisciplinary and innovative approach. It combines world-leading research expertise from the 8 most research intensive universities in the North of England (Durham, Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield and York) and works with a wide range of agri-food stakeholders including industry, government, NGOs and regulators both locally and internationally. The goals of the N8 AgriFood programme include sustainable food production, resilient supply chains and improved consumption and health.

• More than 650 researchers working in agri-food
• More than 220 registered PhD students working in agri-food
• A portfolio of £269 million of agri-food research funding
