Knowledge for better food systems

FCRN Blogs

The FCRN is all about the conversations and about transmitting knowledge and ideas in ways that people understand and that encourage further exploration and debate. We have created this space to encourage more personal stories with a focus on new ideas, debates and collaborations. The blog-posts are written by people who wish to share something related to new research, reflections from conferences and events or just to highlight thoughts on new ideas and emerging topics of concern. We encourage all of you to contribute. Don't hesitate to get in touch (mariepersson(at)fcrn.org.uk) to pitch a topic.
