A Week of Food Waste
Last week was filled with food waste— £250 million worth of it in the UK, and multiple events around Cambridge to discuss the issue. Rosemary Ostfeld blogs on the Cambridge Science Festival’s Inglorious Fruit and Veg seminar.
Transdisciplinarity is possible, but takes a lot of effort.
In this commentary Ksenia Gerasimova reflects upon the issue of transdisciplinarity and building bridges between natural and social sciences. She refers to her experience of organising the Food Security Conference in Cambridge in June 2016.

Global food security is a major research priority for UK and international science.

Cambridge Global Food Security is a Strategic Research Initiative of the University of Cambridge. We promote an interdisciplinary approach to addressing the challenge of ensuring all people at all times have access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and preferences for an active and healthy life.
