Funding is complex and we aim to sign-post the best opportunities for Agri-Tech on our website in the funding section.
Together with Smart- AKIS we are trying to demystify the process with a dedicated networking meeting hosted to present and discuss the different routes.
This includes presentations from:
Eastern Agri-Tech Growth Initiative – funding of between £10,000 to £150,000 for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the regional agri-tech sector
Knowledge Transfer Partnership – a national programme that helps businesses improve their competitiveness and productivity through collaborative research with academic and research partners. The business partner must be capable of making significant use of the knowledge, skills and/or capability to be transferred
Innovate UK – funding for UK businesses to support the delivery of game changing or disruptive innovations with significant potential for impact on the UK economy.
BBSRC – allocates funding to research projects. UK’s bioscience research base receives £16.6 million from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund.
Douglas Bomford Trust – Funds individuals to help advance knowledge, understanding, practice, and competence in the application of engineering and technology to achieve sustainable agri-food systems.
