Description

DESCRIPTION

There are many people working directly or indirectly on food across the University’s staff and student body, and across a vast range of disciplines. Food Thinkers Lunches aim to provide an informal atmosphere for the stimulation and exchange of ideas, and the building of collaborations. Each lunch has a theme and two speakers who will speak briefly (5-10 minutes) on their work as it relates to the theme.

Please note - Register for TWO LUNCH EVENTS ONLY - You will be bumped off a list if you apply for more!! You can only attend if you sign up. Please only book one place at a time - if you know of anyone interested in attending, send them the link and ask them to sign up (or email me at ifstal-oxford@eci.ox.ac.uk).
