Engaging with One Health:
Translating perceptions around aquatic and terrestrial animal consumption in Vietnam and China
- To build a research network for UK staff to bid for AHRC/ESRC and NERC funding via an international conference/workshop
- To organise a public engagement workshop with Vietnam, and UK researchers and stakeholders, industries, policymakers, and community representatives, etc. During the event, we will collect some interviews and questionnaires data on ‘perceptions around aquatic and terrestrial animal consumption and nutrition in Vietnam’.
- To develop project ideas, theoretical and methodological frameworks for funding bids or ideas for publications
The project’s outcome will help us to improve the assimilation and translation of international peer-reviewed food consumption research; improve public health by altering food consumption behaviour, and thereby reduce the likelihood of future pandemics related to the consumption and preservation of wildlife for a sustainable future. This is in line with the university’s strategies on research with an ‘interdisciplinary focus’. The project is linked to the university’s research theme of Cultures, Communities and Society, with a specific focus on Global Food Security and (Food) Cultural Heritage programmes.
