The objective of the Food Systems Policy Hub is to place N8 AgriFood at the centre of the science policy interface. Our Hub gives policymakers and the agrifood community access to our expertise, either through direct contact with our academics, or through various materials and outputs from our research and activities.

To date, we have made substantial contributions to the debate regarding the challenges of the food system. In addition, we aim to support N8 AgriFood researchers to understand the value of policy engagement and evidence synthesis, and further develop their skills.

The programme is already achieving this through various activities. Below, we have grouped a selection of our activities to demonstrate our policy influence and impact. Please click on the images below.
