STFC Food Security Network+

The STFC Food Network+ applies the research capabilities of the UK’s Science and Technology Facilities Council to food industry and research challenges in sustainable production, resilient supply chains, and consumer behaviour and nutrition. STFC provides access to the UK’s world-leading, large-scale facilities across a range of physical and life sciences including Diamond Light Source, neutron imaging (ISIS) and the Central Laser Facility (CLF). STFC also funds fundamental research into astro, particle and nuclear physics; this builds capability for large scale data science, for example to process petabytes of data with the Large Hadron Collider; it also develops precision technology, for example space instrumentation mass spectrometers used on the Rosetta comet mission.
