Forum grant

This grant enables groups of up to 20 scientists to explore a topic of special interest relating to human nutrition, animal nutrition or crop science.

The forum usually takes place over one or two days at either a university or research institute based in the UK. There’s often a published meeting report or white paper on the outcome of the forum.

We welcome applications from institutions or individual research groups in the UK. The grant covers reasonable travel, food and accommodation costs up to a maximum of £10,000.

Recent topics have included the Eatwell Guide, and the effects of food insecurity on nutrition and health.
