The BBSRC DRINC Research Programme - A Successful Partnership
This Virtual Issue of Nutrition Bulletin draws together more than 20 papers published in the journal over the past decade that describe, discuss and disseminate work funded under the UK research councils' Diet Research and Industry Club (DRINC).
DRINC was first established in 2008 as a £12 million, 5-year partnership led by BBSRC (the Biotechnological and Biosciences Research Council), with funding from three other research councils (ESRC, the Economic and Social Research Council; EPSRC, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council; and MRC, the Medical Research Council) and a consortium of leading food and drink companies. It was subsequently extended and the final projects funded under the programme are now coming to an end.
