The Global Food Security programme is holding a community event on Monday 20 July 2015, for researchers to learn about a major new five-year interdisciplinary research programme called ‘Resilience of the UK food system in a Global Context’.
The programme has been co-designed by the Food Standards Agency (FSA), BBSRC, ESRC, NERC, and Defra, in partnership with others.

App note: Detection of squalene and squalane origin with flash elemental analyser and delta V isotope ratio mass spectrometer
This application note assesses the chemical differences between squalane from shark liver oil and squalane from olive oil, and how the differences can detect origin and adulteration.
This event aims to bring together researchers from biological, environmental and social sciences and representatives from policy, industry, NGOs and other relevant stakeholders to provide insight on the call themes as well as encourage development of partnerships and collaborative proposals in food security and resilience.
