University to partner on a unique food challenge

Categories: School of Science, Engineering and Environment

Industry partnerships are central to what we do at the University and is what makes the ‘Salford Experience’ unique. 

We are delighted to announce that we will be working with partner FoodSync to launch the FoodSync Impact Challenge Fund (FICF).   The challenge aims to change how we produce and consume food to be sustainable with the initiative looking for an organisation or business to work with on a joint venture. 

The winning idea will receive £20,000 to make their vision a reality in addition to receiving mentoring from an expert support group to drive long-lasting change in the food system. 

Dr Michael Hardman, Senior Lecturer at the University of Salford and a member of the FICF steering group said: “ The FoodSync Impact Challenge Fund is vital to tackling issues around food security in the region. The fund offers a unique opportunity to support a range of projects and schemes aiming to enhance sustainable food in Greater Manchester.”

Applications to be part of the challenge are open now with the deadline being 1st November 2021. Winners will be announced in December this year.
