SCI's Agrisciences Group covers the production, protection and utilisation of crops for food and non-food products. The group is a unique multidisciplinary network involved in all aspects of food security and the bioeconomy. We aim to cover contemporary agricultural science and agribusiness interests.

We welcome enthusiastic new members with knowledge, opinions and connections to share. We especially welcome new members at early stages in their careers who are keen to network and learn about wider career options, as well as keep up to date on topical matters. It is a great chance to make your mark in a different environment to work or university. 

Message from the Chair

Robin BlakeDr Robin Blake

'World agriculture faces significant challenges to provide food security for the burgeoning population and to provide animal feed, fuel, fibre and many other materials too, from drugs to plastics. There is a clear need to share knowledge across networks founded on scientific rigour, and the SCI Agrisciences Group is well placed to contribute.

'Our stakeholders include those in the science-based agricultural community, the food chain industries, players involved in the bioeconomy, the education sector and the media, and we also welcome interaction with policy formers and regulators, and the public at large.'

We have also joined with other SCI groups in the Agriculture, Horticulture and Food sectors to form an Agri-Food Hub. More.
