Christmas dinner 2016

We at BNV have grown quickly since the establishment in 2014. We have secured large and small grants and published many papers. We see young colleagues, PhD students and visiting scholars joining us. Our research scope has expanded from originally agricultural cooperatives to global value chain and other agricultural supply chain related to topics including sustainability. The relationships with our international partners have been strengthened. The most important of all is that we have built a community here for you. In educational literature, there is a term called ‘community of practice’ which means academics of similar interest working together as a community, a group, which enhances the knowledge exchange and created new ideas and research. In a sense, we strengthen and get our identity as BNV research group increasingly recognized. Our identity is that we are a group who is deeply embedded and interested in ‘agri-food systems’ research in terms of sustainability, social and environmental. We investigate the fundamental relationships between business, nature and value.

On behalf of the founding members, I welcome new members to the group and wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I’ll see you and look forward to working with you all in the new year of 2017!
