Our partners, past and present, include:
The CLEAR Project (Communication, Literacy & Education for Agricultural Research) encourages young scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, to develop effective strategies for communicating science to a broad public audience. CLEAR members share science through diverse, engaging, community-oriented activities. They communicate research-supported information to emphasize the value of scientific research in providing food, feed, and fuel for the expanding population in the face of climate change.
The Cornell Alliance for Science seeks to promote access to scientific innovation as a means of enhancing food security, improving environmental sustainability, and raising the quality of life globally. They work to ensure global access to life-improving agricultural innovations that can shrink farming’s footprint, deliver food security, reduce the drudgery of field work that often falls on women and children, provide rural families with sufficient income to educate their children, and inspire young people to pursue a career in agriculture and science.
IIFH nurtures and accelerates innovation through industry-academic collaborations and experiential learning programs. Focused on tackling the most pressing food system challenges, IIFH harnesses strategic partnerships, provides research funding and hosts convening events at the interface of food, ag and health.
Capital Science Communicators is an association of science writers and communicators serving California’s Capital Region — Sacramento, Davis, and beyond. As a social and professional network, CapSciComm seeks to connect professionals and students in journalism, public relations, creative, policy, public science, and research.
The World Food Center mobilizes the resources of UC Davis to promote innovative, sustainable, and equitable food systems by bringing together partners in academia, industry, and the civic sector to: develop integrated solutions to the grand challenges of providing food for all: climate change, resource scarcity, and sustainability; propel California’s world-class food and agriculture technology hub; and promote cutting-edge research, educational, and outreach programs in food systems.
The Global Food Initiative addresses one of the critical issues of our time: how to sustainably and nutritiously feed a world population expected to reach 8 billion by 2025. The goals are to work together across the UC system to create solutions that improve food security, health and sustainability throughout California, the U.S. and the world, identify best practices to address food needs and create toolkits to share locally and globally, use the latest UC research to help communities access healthy, sustainable food, and apply UC expertise to shape and drive food policy discussions.
