Families sought for UCC food study

Families are being sought for a fascinating University College Cork food study that is being led by faculty Dr Claire O’Neill, a lecturer in marketing ethics. 

The research team are seeking 40 families from all over Munster to sign up for an international study into how the way food arrives into the home can influence the sustainability of a household.

Professor Mary McCarthy, Dr Claire O’Neill and Dr Shadi Hashem at Cork University Business School are involved in an EU project, PLATEFORMS which aims to produce in-depth knowledge on how food practices in the home are affected by new innovations in food provisioning platforms. 
This project is funded by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, in collaboration with the Environmental Research Institute (ERI) in UCC and research partners in four other European countries as part of a €1.2m EU project to investigate how food supply and food consumption are contributing to sustainability. You can keep up with the findings of the project here or by following Plateforms on Twitter
