Information Cultures in Food Safety Cultures
Over the past six years, CARR and the Food Standards Agency (FSA) have promoted research co-production through the shared funding of post-doctoral researchers. This agreement started with the ESRC-secondment of Dr Julien Etienne and was subsequently continued through co-financing by LSE and the FSA of a two year-position for Dr Jeremy Brice (2016-8) and, since 2018, Dr Jose Bolanos. The funding is to encourage issue-specific and cumulative work that applies research directly to practice and is part of the wider FSA programme on Regulating Our Future. Watch a video here
