N8 AgriFood – joined up thinking across organisations, disciplines and the whole supply chain

We have a community of over 650 staff, complemented by a network of 220 PhD students all active in agri-food related research across the N8 institutions.

Funding successes

  • Since the inception of the programme we can identify £60.1m of grant income and £5.3m of industry income related to food research across the N8 institutions
  • We can directly attribute £9.9m of this external funding to N8 AgriFood. There are 24 projects, 12 of which are N2+ and a further 12 which as well as being N2+ involve industry, non-N8 universities, international organisations and international universities.
