Doctoral students and post-doctoral fellows in LMICs and Canada are invited to propose novel, solutions-oriented research ideas that:

  • promote healthy and sustainable food systems in LMICs;
  • support the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas that draw upon different theories, methodological tools, frameworks, and approaches; and
  • harness lessons from research, civil society, and policy spheres that bridge the fields of global health, food systems, and environmental sustainability research.
