Delivering on investment in agri-food research
22 September 2011
In order to better understand how existing research findings can benefit the agri-food industry, BBSRC and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, working with the Government Office of Science Food Research Partnership, commissioned RAND Europe to analyse the range of knowledge exchange activities in the UK agriculture and food value chain, using wheat as a model.
The study sought to generate tools and insights into the translational research process, with a view to increasing innovation and improving UK productivity, not only in wheat and other commodity crops in the agri-food sector, but potentially across a number of business sectors.
