Global Academy of Agriculture and Food Systems

Food Systems Transformation

Transformation of global agri-food systems is central to achieving food and environmental security.

We investigate and promote innovation in complex food-supply systems – including appropriate new technologies - to deliver sustainable, healthy diets, to drive the transformation towards resilient, fair and sustainable food systems, and to support growth in the wider bio-economy.

Our interests include: novel farming systems; understanding the role of livestock-derived foods in sustainable, healthy diets; optimizing use of animal genetic resources and feed resources to develop sustainable livestock systems; soil, crop and livestock management for sustainable intensification; precision agriculture; and agri-business models that support fair value distribution along supply chains.

We welcome applicants for PhD studies in any of these areas, as well as discussions for research collaboration.

Please contact individual researchers for research collaboration.  For more information on PhD admissions email
