IFSTAL Year 2 Launch - London Event
Tue 18 October 2016, 18:00 – 20:00 BST
Please join us for the Year 2 Launch Event for the Innovative Food Systems Teaching and Learning (IFSTAL). IFSTAL is a collaborative, interdisciplinary, cross-university food systems training programme for postgraduate students, linking with the workplace to improve future human, animal and environmental health. During its first very successful year, IFSTAL brought together over 400 students across the seven participating institutions to learn about food systems beyond their own disciplines and we hope to build on this in its second year.
Professor Martin Caraher from the Centre for Food Policy at City University of London and Dr Barbara Haesler from the Royal Veterinary College and LCIRAH will be chairing the event, introducing the audience to the objectives of the programme and options for students and workplace partners to get involved in the IFSTAL network. You will have a chance to meet our partners in the other participating IFSTAL institutions at Oxford University, Warwick University and Reading University during a live-streamed video call. Afterwards we will have our own local discussion with the audience led by a panel of experts including Professor Jane Dixon from Australian National University, Professor Peter Mollinga from SOAS/LCIRAH and Professor Bhavani Shankar from SOAS/RVC/LCIRAH. To close the event there will be a reception giving you the opportunity to meet other colleagues studying and working on food-related topics.
There will be simultaneous events happening across the country in IFSTAL's partner institutions: Oxford University, Reading University and Warwick University. In London, this event will be hosted by City University London and LCIRAH (LSHTM, RVC, SOAS). If you would like to attend the lecture at any of the other IFSTAL locations please visit our website for more information.
