The AFN Network+ is delighted to announce an experimental rolling flexible fund for UK-based stakeholders to implement activities that support our mission to build a community of practice working towards achieving net zero through the agri-food sector by 2050. We build collaborative relationships between key actors in the agri-food system, and support farmer and academic projects including on-farm trials combined with desktop research. The AFN Network+ is building a broad knowledge base to support better peer-to-peer sharing and help UK businesses meet the challenge of climate and nature crises.
Open to members of the AFN Network+, the fund is for any UK-based activity that explores, develops and trials solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions within the agri-food system (covering primary production, processing, distribution, retail, catering and consumption).
Activities should contribute to identifying and shaping the research, innovation and policy development required to deliver an agri-food system that supports the UK’s net zero by 2050 target. Activities could include (but are not limited to): workshops; discussion panels and roundtables; podcasts; farm-led field trials; digital or technology-based activities (e.g. digitising archives); or other events.
The total amount you can apply for is between £500 and £2,000. More details on the Stakeholder FlexFund.
