Positioning UC Davis as the partner of choice for food research and training in China, the World Food Center is expanding partnerships with regional governments and leading food industries in China. Together, these partnerships will form in both China and the U.S. a network of collaborations focused on critical challenges to a safe and sustainable food system.
Agreements to establish hubs in the cities of Zhuhai and Weifang will provide nearly $3.1 million in total funding for a platform of international cooperation for research, training and technology development across the food system.
Among the initial priorities are:
- fostering sustainable agriculture practices
- reducing the contamination of soil and water
- reducing food safety risks
