N8 AgriFood doctoral seminar
13 May 2019
The next event in this series will be on 'Walking the Chain' at the University of Liverpool on June 10 and 11.
This event is the next in this series of informal, interdisciplinary workshops across the N8 universities (Durham, Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield and York) for PhD students from both the natural and social sciences.
Everyday our food is produced through a series of movements and transactions across a wide geographical area. At each step across the food system there are transactions of money and product, production of ingredients and raw materials into animal feed and food for the market. Understanding this complex food system requires information on the biological and technical relationships between inputs and outputs, the prices of goods and services and the rules and enforcement systems that people and organisations work under. The two day seminar being run by N8 Agrifood Programme and Liverpool’s Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Food Systems will provide an insight into the dairy food system and also the tools required to make sense of the biological, economic, social and cultural background of that system.
