N8 AgriFood is a unique research collaboration


We combine expertise and multiple disciplines from the 8 research intensive universities in the North of England – Durham, Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield and York.

The programme takes a food systems approach to tackling the challenges facing food security.

Through effective collaboration across the sector with industry, government, small to medium businesses, non-governmental organisations and charities, we aim to generate new knowledge and in turn take action to address these complex challenges.
