Collaborating to drive Agri-Tech Innovation on the NRP
November 4 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Climate resilience in agriculture is one of the themes of this Agri-Tech Week event, which aims to showcase agri-tech innovation from the research institutes and companies based at Norwich Research Park.
The Norwich Research Park’s (NRP) six science partners form an international centre of excellence in life and environmental sciences research, with particular strengths in plant and microbial sciences, genetics and genomics, climate and geo-sciences and food, health and human nutrition.
The campus stretches from the University of East Anglia (UEA) to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals (NNUH) and includes a number of research institutes the Earlham Institute (EI), Quadram Institute Bioscience (QIB), John Innes Centre (JIC) and the Sainsbury Laboratory (TSL). It has attracted a good number of early stage companies as tenants and they benefit from access to the expertise and capitally intensive equipment located on the park.
