The department welcomes opportunities to collaborate with individuals, companies and organizations in both the private and public sectors.
Food, Nutrition and Culinary science is about our encounters with food and meals and is, to a large extent, an interdisciplinary field. Food and meals, and how they are produced, have an effect on health, the economy and the environment for individuals and wider society. The department can offer several opportunities for collaboration. Please contact us for more information.
