Agency seeks views on nutrition research

Health Food - illustrating an item from the UK Food Standards Agency.

The Food Standards Agency is currently carrying out a strategic review of its nutrition research portfolio and has launched a public consultation, seeking views on the future direction of this work. The consultation responses will be used by an external panel of experts, set up to undertake the review, to inform recommendations.

Professor Mike Kelly of the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence, is chairing the panel tasked with making recommendations to the FSA about the future content and the balance between different areas of research. This work aims to ensure that the portfolio continues to meet the policy needs of the FSA and is regarded as being value for money.

The panel has been asked to horizon scan the Agency’s nutrition research needs, taking into account UK public health drivers, the role and remit of other funders and possible collaborations, current funding levels, value for money and key stakeholder views.
