Food & Health

Food that can cure diabetes? A drink that can clean your teeth? Drop in (12pm–5pm) for a hands-on exploration of the food and health research that happens in Norwich.
From 6pm, meet Norwich Research Park scientists and work together with them to solve the problems that you see, and inspire the science of the future (booking required).
Come and join scientists from across the Norwich Research Park as we invite you to help inspire the science of the future with an interactive exploration of research in Norwich and the issues that matter to you.

This event will be the first of its kind at the Norwich Science Festival. We won’t just be talking to you about our science but would like to understand what is most important to you, and how we can ensure that we design future science projects with your concerns in mind.

Beginning with a hands-on look at research in Norwich, participants will then work directly with our scientists on their vision of the future of food and health research through a fun, interactive experience. At the end of the workshop, we will all have a chance to present our vision for the future, which we will summarise with a piece of artwork that will be distributed to each of the participants after the event.

Hosted by the institutes of the Norwich Research Park, who collectively are working at the forefront of biological science research related to food and health. From developing better varieties of plant, through to making robots and machine learning algorithms for growing more crops or maintaining a healthier gut, we cover a range of important topics for the benefit of humanity.
