The AFN Network+ has launched a consultation on the Research and Policy Priorities for the UK agri-food system.
The AFN Network+ was established in 2022 to help inform the work of the UK research councils. This consultation document has been produced after the Network’s first year of activities, and research priorities were explored at an expert workshop in November 2023. It sets out the suggested priorities for research and policy under six themes. (These themes were generated from previous discussions among Network+ members and at our ‘Big Tent’ event in Leeds in May 2023). We also propose policy options. The six themes are not strictly discrete and bounded and the proposed research and policy options often straddle them. We have added a final section considering system-wide and cross-cutting issues.
You can download the consultation document below and submit your response here. (You can respond to as much, or as little, as you like.)
The consultation will remain open until 5pm, Friday 9 February 2024.
