NIAB EMR’s science strategy is developed when, for the first time in several decades, food security is high on the global agenda of challenges, and significant research effort is being directed to meet this challenge by the UK research councils and government departments, and international agencies and donors.
For NIAB EMR this offers an opportunity to deploy our skills both to benefit the horticultural industry of the UK and beyond, and to contribute to the wider public and social good.
