The aim of this programme is to find ways to deliver a better, evidence-based and interdisciplinary decision-making framework to inform how land is used, through research collaboration with policy, business and land management partners.
This programme will take an interdisciplinary approach to funding research that aims to use local, cultural, and natural assets and activities to support improvements in health inequalities in the UK.
It is supported by a partnership with the National Centre for Creative Health (NCCH) and will fund projects in three phases.
BBSRC has identified industrial biotechnology in its strategic plan as a priority area to reduce dependency on petrochemicals and help the UK to become a low carbon economy, contributing to the targets for reducing emission of greenhouse gases.
The aim of this research area is to support a broad range of high quality research relating to diet, nutrition and obesity that will help in the promotion of health and in the protection from, and treatment of, disease such as diabetes and cardiovascular problems.
The aim of this programme is to support the research needed to understand the risks posed by plastic pollution in low and middle income countries. It will explore which interventions, policies and regulations can mitigate these risks, enabling a cleaner, more resilient and productive environment.
The aim of this strategic priority is to address issues of food waste through increased efficiencies or interventions which prevent wastage, at any point in the food chain, from source to stomach. It also looks at potential alternative uses for food waste.
The principles of replacement, refinement and reduction (the 3Rs) are now widely accepted internationally as criteria for humane animal use in research and testing. This priority aims to advance further improvements through the development, integration and promotion of 3Rs approaches.
One of BBSRC’s priorities is to support research that can contribute to the development of scientifically informed public policy, or that will enable a more scientific and evidence-based approach to its delivery – in any area of science in our remit.
Improve population health, tackle the health inequalities affecting people and communities, and advance interventions that keep us healthier for longer.
This is a priority area for standard research grants from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC). It encourages proposals that aim to enhance food and non-food production using resources more efficiently, with better outcomes – while minimising environmental impact.
