How to engage researchers

Our impact lead Callum Etches explores how food partnerships can engage research institutions to contribute to their impact measurements and as a source of funding. 

In the session, we look at how food partnerships can work collaboratively with researchers and universities. Our SFP Impact Lead, Callum Etches, is joined by the Professor Peter Jackson, co-director of the Institute of Sustainable Food, and Selina Treuherz, coordinator of the Sheffield Food Partnership, ShefFood, to discuss opportunities and challenges in building mutually beneficial research collaborations. 

We discuss:

  • How to ensure collaborations add value to the work of food partnerships 
  • Opportunities for obtaining research funding 
  • The role of food partnership coordinators in facilitating research collaboration
