N8 AgriFood researchers are helping to change the way academics work with the food industry

Knowledge Exchange Fellows (KEFs) link N8 AgriFood with external organisations such as industry, government bodies and NGOs, to develop collaborative research solutions to current agrifood challenges.

N8 AgriFood currently has 15 KEFs working across the priority areas of sustainable food production, resilient supply chains and healthy nutrition to develop and enable the application of research for external organisations to deliver economic, social and cultural impact at a national and global level.

Dr Shane Rothwell and Dr Katerina Psarikidou have started work as Lancaster University’s first N8 Agrifood Knowledge Exchange fellows – read about their journey here
