Event description

Description

N8 AgriFood in Manchester, together with Prof Clare Mills (our new Theme 3 Lead) are holding this workshop on the 14th December to raise awareness of N8 AgriFood and to show how it can help colleagues across the University with contacts and funding.

The event is open to anyone working at the University of Manchester and has been designed to encourage collaborations and pump priming applications that will lead to future funding applications.

The focus of Theme 3 (Improved Consumption and Health) is on improving public health while lowering the burden of food production and distribution on the natural environment: through changes in behaviour, diet and other socio-economic factors.

Our draft agenda for the afternoon is as follows:

· 12pm – Lunch

. 1pm – Introduction to N8 from Louise Dye (Theme 3 Chair in Nutrition & Behaviour Change - N8 AgriFood)

· 1:30pm – Introduction to Theme 3 from Jason Halford (Theme Lead for N8 AgriFood)

· 2pm – ‘Improved tools for investigating the intestinal uptake and subsequent immune and endocrine responses to novel dietary proteins’
(Prof Clare Mills’ Strategic Pump Priming Fund award)

· 2:30pm – Awarded Theme 3 local pump priming awards:

- Aaron Meskin (Leeds) - Sadler/N8 AgriFood Seminar Series: Philosophical and Psychological Approaches to Values and Food Choice

- Alison Fildes (Leeds) - Standardising the measurement of Household Food Insecurity in UK families

· 3pm – Coffee

· 3:15pm – Talk from Lorna Friis (BBSRC) on Nutrition, diet and health strategy

· 3:30pm – Brainstorming sessions around potential project ideas at Manchester

· 4:30pm - Roundup and next steps from Clare Mills/Alison Fletcher

Please do pass this on to any colleagues you think may be interested.
