The New Innovation Hub For Research Into Biofortification
The BioFortification Hub provides support and funding to applicants aiming to undertake innovative research projects in the area of biofortification, the development of crops, foods, feed and fodder with higher levels of nutrients.
Our mission is to promote collaborative interactions and research projects between industry and academia as well as to support the UK biofortification community by disseminating opportunities and information in health and nutrition.
The hub is located on the Norwich Research Park (UK) and is one of six hubs funded by BBSRC in 2022 as part of the Open Innovation Research Club (OIRC) on diet and health.
