What is the Queen's-AFBI Alliance?
Global food systems are fast changing and Northern Ireland is no different. Local agriculture and food production are facing many urgent challenges including climate change, the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic and geopolitics such as the war in Ukraine and Brexit.
The Queen's-AFBI Alliance is a response to those changes, to create a more 'joined-up' agrifood knowledge base in Northern Ireland, and to pool resources, talent, facilities, capabilities and risks.
The Alliance is creating a research, education, enterprise and knowledge-exchange partnership to address the global challenges to food security from a NI perspective, but also to better equip future generations of agrifood systems leaders in this part of the world.
There is a cohort of PhD students now working under the Queen's-AFBI Alliance, researching innovative ways to create a more sustainable agrifood sector. Watch the videos to find out more
