UKRI aims to establish a Network Plus around the challenge of transitioning the agri-food sector to net-zero. The network will convene an interdisciplinary, multi-stakeholder community and provide dedicated support for feasibility projects. The projects will explore how sectoral transformation can be most effectively catalysed. The funding will generate evidence to support strategies to sustainably reduce or mitigate greenhouse gas emissions from the agri-food sector. The Network Plus will also consider how UK agri-food systems can adapt to become more resilient to climate change and the resulting environmental impacts, including biodiversity loss, changes in land use, and ecosystem services.
Apply for funding to develop a research network that will focus on improving the sustainability of the agri-food system.
You must be:
- based at an eligible UK-based organisation
- working in a science discipline.
Co-investigators can be from any discipline.
Your network is expected to:
- focus on improving the sustainability of the agri-food system to reduce greenhouse gas emissions
- build new interdisciplinary partnerships across the UKRI portfolio
- be informed by stakeholders
- develop plans for future research and innovation.
The full economic cost of your network can be up to £4.375 million. We will fund 80% of the full economic cost.
Your project can last up to 36 months.
