Ƶ is part of  “FLAVOUR Project” part-funded by the INTERREG 2 Seas Mers Zeeën Programme. With the entire programme area struggling to prevent food waste and the number of people experiencing food insecurity increasing, the FLAVOUR project has been designed to tackle these challenges through the valorisation of food surplus whilst simultaneously creating jobs, pathways to employment and supporting people living in food insecurity. The project specifically intend to create new, socially innovative business models to make the interception and redistribution of surplus viable. 


A busy schedule of research events

The University is committed to supporting our researchers and offers a wide range of training & knowledge exchange events for postgraduate research students and staff. The Research & Knowledge Exchange Office is responsible for coordinating a programme of events split into four main series:

  • Academy Lecture Series: high-profile speakers from a range of disciplines, open to the public.
  • Brown Bag Series: an opportunity for staff and students to share and discuss their research. A great opportunity for PGR students and early career researchers to build confidence within an informal setting.
  • Research Developer Series: a wide range of training workshops including support with bids, statistical workshops, life after PhD and much more.
  • Research Supervisor Forum: support for PGR supervisors and a chance to share best practice.
