Impact of climate change on food safety
Responding to adverse environments and food safety conditions.
Lead researchers: Professor Rachel Gomes and Assistant Professor Becca Ferrari
Climate change and food safety now come hand-in-hand, as we continue to stretch to meet population demands for food, coupled with an evolving climate.
The Innovative Training Network (ITN) is an international project that will train highly-skilled early stage researchers on a range of predictive modelling tools to evaluate the effects of climate change on food safety. 'Predictive mOdelling Tools to evaluate the Effects of Climate change on food safeTy' (PROTECT) will also bring together intersectoral and multidisciplinary expertise from 11 European countries in doing so.
Professor Gomes is Head of the Food, Water, Waste (FWW) Research Group
