Cambridge Global Challenges SRI (CGC) and Cambridge Global Food Security IRC (CGFS) wish to support interdisciplinary research addressing specific challenges relating to malnutrition in Official Development Assistance (ODA)-target countries.

The workshop on 21st November will be focussed on three specific nutrition challenges brought by colleagues from Bahir Dar University (Ethiopia) and from Nabakrushna Choudhury Centre for Development Studies (India) to Cambridge and will enable interdisciplinary dialogue within small groups of researchers, leading to proof of concept projects to address these challenges.

The first steps towards the enactment of these proposals will be supported by a seed fund competition (up to £3,000, to fund either travel or equipment to investigate early-stage ideas).

Please register here before 16th November – the event is free but places are limited.

Please contact Sara Serradas Duarte (sbas@cam.ac.uk, Cambridge Global Challenges SRI ) and Jacqueline Garget (jg533@cam.ac.uk, Cambridge Global Food Security IRC ) if you have any questions.

This talk is part of the Cambridge Global Challenges Strategic Research Initiative series.
