N8 AgriFood “takes a bite” at this year’s Royal Society Summer Science Expo

N8 AgriFood, in partnership with the STFC Food Network+, and the University of Manchester are delighted to be taking our exhibit “Take a bite out of climate change” to the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition 1-7th July 2019.

The Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition is the UK’s annual display of its most cutting edge science and technology, with the week-long event featuring 22 exhibits of hands on demonstrations, thought-provoking talks and jaw-dropping demonstrations.

Our exhibit will focus on how primary food production, food processing and consumer food choices contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. We will highlight some key examples of innovations to improve sustainability in these areas. The content will be pitched for science enthusiasts with an interest in food and climate change.

Within our exhibit we’re delighted to be able to showcase innovation in food production by the National Centre of Food Manufacturing at the University of Lincoln, Entocycle, LettUs Grow and Hodmedod’s with underpinning research from the Universities of Lancaster, Sheffield, Manchester and others.

We are supported in this by an Advisory Board comprised of key stakeholders from this research area and we have engaged a fantastic group of Expert Communicators who will bring to life our key messages for visitors to the exhibit over the week.

You will soon be able to find out more about all of our collaborators on our upcoming website.
