Description

Predictive modelling for Future Food

This workshop will facilitate the development of new collaborations around Predictive Modelling for Future Food, and serve as a networking environment for sharing and discussing food related modelling and data analysis research across the University. It particularly seeks to engage academics from a wide range of disciplines/schools/units. Thus, predictive modelling for future food can range from genetic networks to social networks, from hormone transport to food transport.

Background:

The Future Food Beacon aims to deliver world class research to help address the challenge of providing sufficient quantities of nutritious and palatable food to a growing world population within a changing environment. This will be achieved through coupling the power of genome-enabled plant and animal sciences with cutting edge nutritional sciences, food processing and manufacturing technologies, and informed by an understanding of the economic, legal, social and ethical issues that underpin and shape food systems.

Important capabilities for the Future Food Beacon include Informatics and Predictive modelling. Advanced statistical geospatial and mixed modelling will be important to enable linkage of multivariate measurements across scales in the sciences and social sciences, including the genome, phenome, environment, health and human behaviour. Predictive models of food systems allow the integration of mechanistic and observational information across multiple scales, to test new ideas, predict new functions, guide experimentation and optimise targeted improvement strategies.

Expertise in these fields is distributed across the University of Nottingham, often working in isolation and without knowledge of related activity elsewhere. This workshop seeks to bring together both "model providers” (developing, implementing and analysing models; developing and applying data analysis approaches) and “model consumers” (food-related researchers looking to apply modelling and data analysis to their work).

Tentative schedule:

1:00pm: Lunch and networking

1:30pm:Introduction to the Future Food Beacon

1:50pm: Networking activity - One slide in a minute, followed by group discussions

3:00pm: Refreshments

3:20pm: Further group discussions, report back after 30 minutes

3:50pm: Group feedback and wrap up
