There is up to £3 million of funding available from the Department for International Development (DFID) for early-stage feasibility studies, mid stage industrial research and late-stage experimental development. Projects must work on agri-tech and food chain innovations with partners in eligible African countries.
The aim of this competition is to increase the pace of development and scale of uptake of agricultural and food systems innovation by farmers and food systems actors (such as manufacturers, processors, retailers, distributors or wholesalers) in Africa.
The competition will open in April 2019, with a submission deadline in June 2019.
KTN (knowledge Transfer Network) is hosting a briefing and consortia building event for Round 8 of the Agri-Tech Catalyst on Friday 22nd March in Birmingham and a series of online webinars on Friday 5th April to provide more tailored support to applicants focussing on projects involving crops, livestock and aquaculture, or food systems and nutrition.
