Syfte och mål
The primary purpose of this grant was to develop a positive professional working relationship between Dr. Edith Callaghan from Acadia University and Dr. Göron Broman at Blekinge Tekniska Högskola. This was accomplished and resulted in completion and submission of an application to Vinnmer -- Marie Curie Incoming Grant. An initial literature review to support interdisciplinary work in sustainable food systems was completed. A consortium with additional scholars and practitioners was established. Conceptual development for additional grant applications was accomplished.
Resultat och förväntade effekter
This Incoming Planning Grant has allowed us to solidify a positive working relationship between researchers and institutions. Dr. Callaghan has been able to advance her professional aspirations of working closely with experts in the field of sustainability, as well as submerging herself in the board field of food systems. This grant has allowed her to take the initial, and important, steps toward becoming established as an expert scholar in the field of strategic sustainability for global-secure food systems.
