The Lincoln Food Partnership has been awarded the University of Lincoln Vice Chancellor’s Award for Public Engagement with Research.
The Award judges assessed the research on the ‘food economy and community’ of Lincoln that led to the production of the Lincoln City Food Strategy and the establishment of the Lincoln Food Partnership. In particular they evaluated the impact of the research on action on the ground, particularly in the areas of food poverty, food education, food waste and involvement with local policy.
The research was carried out by members of the University’s Health Advancement Research Team (HART), led by Professor Jacquelyn Allen-Collinson and Professor Nigel Curry (pictured) and the judging panel deemed their performance in this area of linking research with action on the ground to be “exceptional”.
The Award was presented at a University’s ceremony to mark a number of areas of community achievement.
