Professor Tim Benton is the 'Champion' for the UK's Global Food Security programme. The role of the Champion is to act as a leader, coordinator and facilitator of the programme and to act as an ambassador both for the programme and the area, facilitating knowledge exchange between research and stakeholders in government, industry and society.
The Global Food Security programme is a partnership of the UK's main public funders of research in food security, including the Research Councils and UK Government departments, including Defra, DfID and the Food Standards' Agency, as well as the Scottish Government and Welsh Assembly Government. The role of the Global Food Security programme is to ensure that strategically important research is undertaken in related sciences, and to add value to research using interdisciplinary collaboration, alignment and engagement with communities of stakeholders.
