The Brighton and Sussex Universities Food Network (BSUFN) does what our name suggests – we provide a network for people researching food-related issues at the Universities of Brighton and Sussex. An important feature of BSUFN is engaging with the local community and local organisations in Brighton & Hove and throughout East Sussex. As such, a number of our members represent local community groups and organisations.
Despite this local focus of BSUFN, the things we are doing and discussions we are having are reaching far beyond East Sussex. Not only does BSUFN have members who are located at other universities within the UK but even has two members at universities overseas. The international interest in BSUFN is clearly represented by our online interactions through our website and Twitter account.
We are now half way through 2015 and so far this year articles of BSUFN’s website have been viewed in 54* countries worldwide.
*N.B. Although China is not indicated on the map this is because the website cannot be accessed from within China due to government restrictions. However, BSUFN are aware of readers in China who are viewing our website via other countries.
