This seminar explores the food terrain exposed by the wider “Brexit versus Bremain” Referendum question to be decided by the voting UK public on June 23. Based on a briefing paper published by the Food Research Collaboration, it was written to raise issues; to invite academics and civil society working on food matters to consider how their work fits this momentous issue; and to aid informed decisions.

This LIDC event will present the Global Challenge Research Fund (GCRF). The UK Research Councils will deliver through the GCRF £1.5b in research grants for international development research over the next five years.

The LIDC event “REF: routes to impact” aims to raise awareness among academic members of the multiple routes to impact their research can have. The aim of the evening is to let researchers consider the numerous ways that research can have an impact within an international development context.
