The ACWFS is an interdisciplinary institute at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU) which conducts research in collaboration with societal stakeholders and end-users in order to enhance food & nutrition security by identifying policies and strategies that are economically, socially and environmentally sustainable, responsible, and that increase the quality of life.

This is why we strive to be as interdisciplinary as possible while maintaining transparency and tractability of assumptions, models and scenarios.
