A Strategic Research Initiative of the University of Cambridge

Studying at Cambridge


Ambassador Network

Our Initiative Ambassadors are helping to start more conversations about Global Food Security and the work of the Initiative across Cambridge.

Our Ambassador Network was launched in May 2017 to help us engage with more researchers across the University and beyond. Ambassadors are Cambridge-registered PhD students from departments involved in the Initiative. By helping communicate ideas and getting more people involved, they are helping us make progress towards a sustainable food system.
