The Food Standards Agency (FSA) and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) are calling for research proposals related to understanding the challenges of the food system.

Joint funding of up to £1.87m at 100% full economic costing is available for four to six projects, which should have a maximum duration of two years.

The agencies have identified mutual interest in the challenges presented to UK agri-food system, food safety, food fraud/crime and consumer trust.

Closing date for proposals is 4pm on 30 January 2014 with decisions being made in May.
