Head Technology Identification & Evaluation

"There is an urgent need to increase food productivity and reduce the environmental impacts of agriculture at the same time. The development of new technologies and innovations is a great way to achieve this. New science is being developed all the time, and many new areas have the potential for application in sustainable food production. Nothing is off the table: if you have a good idea that might help improve the food system, then we would be delighted to hear about it!"

We know we don't have all of the answers.
