CCRI researchers are setting up stalls at the Cheltenham and Cirencester farmers’ markets


DNX_fRvW0AAYocVAs part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science this year, a team of CCRI researchers are setting up stalls at the Cheltenham and Cirencester farmers’ markets (on 10th and 11th November respectively) to give short talks and chat with members of the public about our latest food and farming research and how it affects the products we buy.

People will also have the unique opportunity to see a demonstration of a smartphone app, which is being developed by a CCRI research team to help people access local food. Leading this research is our Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship scholar, Marco Della Gala , who was awarded funding by the EU Horizon programme for a training-through-research project SOFIA – Situated Learning Opportunities (SLOs) fostered by ICT applications in Alternative Agro-Food Networks’.
