Research and Development Conference 2015

RD 2

We are bringing together those involved in our expansive Research and Development projects for the second time today at the Royal Institution in Central London. The Research & Development conference will bring together 300 people including leading academics, suppliers, farmers, research institutes and funders.

Titled Working Together on R&D and Innovation, the day will focus on sharing knowledge and address common challenges across the supply chain where R&D can deliver huge benefits.  It is the perfect platform to stimulate new research collaborations between industry and academia and develop ideas and future research opportunities.

With Sainsbury’s Research and Development projects spanning the Global environment through to higher British food yields, this conference aims to bring research programmes and associated partners together to address the challenges and opportunities together. Today’s speakers include:

-      Judith Batchelar – Director Sainsbury’s Brand
