From here, from now, to net zero through agri-food
Together, we’re creating plausible pathways, and practical, open science, to achieve net zero through the agrifood system by 2050.
Creating an active
Delivering a context-dependent roadmap
As a Network+, we’re enabling academics and stakeholders to co-create a shared understanding of the range of global contexts the UK agrifood system may face over the coming decades. We’re exploring plausible pathways for a variety of scenarios to reach net zero through a sustainable UK agrifood system. We’re also establishing a prioritised set of critical research questions that need to be tackled to maximise progress along the pathways.
Shaping the next decade of research
We’re kickstarting cross-discipline/cross-sector projects that capitalise on existing expertise across UKRI. We’re drawing on international insights to accelerate progress towards net zero, by running facilitated scoping-study competitions and supporting projects to maximise their impact and future funding.
We make everyone feel welcome through our communications and in our meetings. We want to make it fun too. And we’ll actively seek diversity with respect to people, geography, subject area and career stage.
We think creatively
We are at our best when we work in co-production with stakeholders. We promote trans- and interdisciplinary working, with a solution-focus.
We focus on what matters most, delivers most. We embed research integrity and maximise transparency, including when managing conflicts of interest.
