New partnership to accelerate food security research

International Edu News

The University of Nottingham has announced a partnership with the Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN) to accelerate research to improve global food security. The University of Nottingham’s Future Food Beacon will work with GODAN to maximise the impact of projects tackling a range of emerging issues across the food system - from mapping micronutrient deficiency to utilising computer technology to improve crop management. The partnership will allow researchers to connect with partners who can accelerate the impact and uptake of innovations, knowledge, and data, and share with those that use it to improve livelihoods for smallholder farmers and their families.

Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN) aims to impact the lives of at least 12 million smallholders internationally by implementing innovations that help achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goal 2: ending global hunger, achieving food security, improving nutrition and sustainable agriculture by 2030.
