Food Economy Task Force Work Stream 2: Science and Translation

Food Economy Task Force Work Stream 2: Science and Translation

Steering GroupWork Stream 1: Talent / Work Stream 2: Science & Translation / Work Stream 3: Land Use

To answer the overarching question of the Task Force the Steering Group agreed that there were three important areas of focus, and recommended that specialist work streams be set up to look into these issues.

The work streams met regularly to delve deeper into issues and solutions, developing research questions and proposals, outputs, propositions, and insights that will be fed back to the Steering Group.

This work stream focused on science and translation and the race to the top of global innovation.
