Agri-Food Early Career

Established 2018

SCI's Agri-Food Early Career Committee covers areas of science including Agrisciences (Food Security, Crop Protection, Agricultural Technology), Food Science and the intersection of these two areas, for Early Career Scientists including Postgraduates.

Message from the Chair

Mr Reuben Margerison


“Feeding the increasing population of our planet is a key challenge facing humanity, and solving it requires integrated thinking and innovative solutions across the entire food supply chain, from agriculture to the consumer.

As a committee, we organise events and training to facilitate networking opportunities and knowledge transfer for and between early-career agricultural and food scientists. This provides the next generation of Agri-Food specialists with the experience that they need to implement synergistic solutions to the challenges to global food security that we all face going forwards.”
