Supply Chain Security
The Food Protection and Defense Institute is a multi-disciplinary and action-oriented research consortium. Collaborations have been established at over 40 academic and private sector organizations.
Research in Supply Chain Security is targeted to strengthening supply chains by understanding system vulnerabilities, rapidly identifying disruptions, assessing risks, prioritizing protection efforts, and analyzing supply chain interdependencies. The ultimate objective is to develop tools to improve how stakeholders and policy makers understand the strengths and mitigate the weaknesses of the local-to-global interconnected systems that enable the food supply chain.
