The University of Oxford has an extensive programme of research and teaching on food. The Environmental Change Institute Food Systems Group has a portfolio of research projects including the Resilience of the UK food system in a global context, and an EU project on Sustainable Food and Nutrition Security (SUSFANS), and a number of research projects in the Global South. We also lead the successful IFSTAL postgraduate teaching and learning programme which provides training on food systems. We are looking to develop new partnerships for CPD and the development of the IFSTAL future programme. The Oxford Martin School leads the Future of Food programme which is an interdisciplinary programme of research and policy engagement concerning all aspects of the food system. It leads a new Wellcome Trust funded programme on Livestock, Environment and People (LEAP) as well as running a programme of events on food systems. It also coordinates the Oxford Food Research Network which spans a large number of departments and institutes across the University of Oxford.
