Hub meeting bursaries for students and early career researchers

26th October 2023

Thanks to the support of some of our industry partners, the Biofortification Hub is pleased to provide four bursaries to cover expenses to attend the first Biofortification Hub Community Meeting which is being held at the John Innes Conference Centre on the Norwich Research Park, on 29-30 November 2023.

The Community Meeting is free and the bursaries of £400 are to support travel, meals and accommodation for UK-based students and early career researchers to attend the meeting,  To apply for a bursary, attendees must fill in a bursary application form by Tuesday 7th November.

By providing these bursaries, we hope to widen participation and encourage researchers from across the United Kingdom, including Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland to attend the Biofortification Hub meeting.

The meeting is free to attend and registration are open online to anyone interested in health, nutrition and biofortification. We aim to bring together the biofortification community from across academia and industry to explore how to work together to improve food and health.

This will be the first of three large Community Meetings that will be held biennially, as part of a programme of workshops and meetings we’ll hold as part of our mission to support, fund and connect academia, industry and policymakers to collaboratively pursue shared research priorities in the area of biofortification.

The Biofortification Hub is part of a network of six Innovation Hubs established in 2022 as part of the Diet and Health Open Innovation Research Club (OIRC) managed by the British Nutrition Foundation (BNF). It has received funding to operate for five years from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), part of UK Research & Innovation (UKRI).
