Liverpool University awards grant for Aquaponics project

The University has awarded seven public engagement with research grants to support staff and postgraduate students with the delivery and promotion of their projects.

Staff and postgraduate research (PGR) students were invited to apply for a University grant of between £200 and £2,000 earlier this year. The seven successful applications were selected from research programmes that made strong offers for a variety of impacts and public benefit.

Dr Iain Young, Institute of Integrative Biology, is working with Farm Urban and Squash Nutrition to deliver an innovative Aquaponics in the community project. This work will see an aquaponic installation engaging local people with the latest sustainable growing technology in the new Toxteth Food Central (TFC) community hub.
