The groundbreaking Research Symposium showcased food systems research in an interactive, exhibition-style format with presentations from over 73 researchers from the Schools of Engineering, Medicine, Business, Law, Humanities and Sciences, and the Schools of Engineering, Medicine, Business, Law, Humanities and Sciences, and the Doerr School of Sustainability, as well as Stanford Impact Labs, Stanford Healthcare, the Scope 3 Emissions Program, SFI, and other departments across campus.
We are pleased to announce that Residential & Dining Enterprises (R&DE) Stanford Dining, Hospitality & Auxiliaries (SDHA) is the first campus dining organization in the country to earn the highest rating from James Beard Foundation’s acclaimed Smart Catch program. Under the program guidelines, Smart Catch Ambassadors demonstrate high performance (their menus consist almost exclusively of approved products) and advocate for seafood sustainability more broadly.
The symposium is envisioned as an interactive, exhibition-style event, featuring food systems research from the Schools of Engineering, Medicine, Business, Law, Humanities and Sciences, and the Doerr School of Sustainability, as well as Stanford Impact Labs, Stanford Healthcare, the Scope 3 Emissions Program, SFI, and other departments across campus.
