On March 24th the New Scientist special dedicated to the Zero Hunger Lab was presented. It gives a closer look at what the researchers of the Zero Hunger Lab have already achieved with their research and what they are aiming for in the (middle)long term. This special will increase the visibility of the Zero Hunger Lab and contribute to the goal of fighting hunger with data science.

In the special, researchers from the Zero Hunger Lab talk about their research and the impact it has on hunger in our world. In addition, partners such as World Food Programme, Voedselbanken (foodbanks) Nederland, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as well as several people within Tilburg University who support the Zero Hunger Lab, will also have their say.

It's particularly nice and inspiring to see so much of our work in the field of reducing hunger in the world displayed so nicely together. Truly an ode to our team and the many partners, internal and external. And to think that we are officially less than 3 years in! I am hugely positive that we are going to achieve a lot more impact!
