The FRC Membership is a unique network of academics and CSO representatives from across disciplines and sectors. We bring our members together through a range of events, co-produced papers, roundtables and workshops to work on key food policy issue.
Our iterative and collaborative model allows us to capture wide-ranging knowledge, research and experience to co-produce evidence-based outputs to inform more effective advocacy and policy development.
As a membership-led organisation, the FRC membership play a key role in shaping our outputs as an organisation and are actively engaged with our activities, playing an essential part in directing our focus and efforts. We also provide a space for our membership to write and publish policy briefings, as well as hosting events in conjunction with the Centre for Food Policy, at City, University of London.
Membership is free of cost, but each application is carefully reviewed. We are looking for members from the following sectors:
- Academics who have a current or past academic connection and have contributed to the food research discourse in the UK, including publication in academic journals.
- Those working on UK food issues for non-governmental Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) which do not distribute profits to private shareholders and so operate in the public interest and who support the general aims and work of the Food Research Collaboration.
