A new £70m funding scheme called ‘Agri-Tech Catalyst’ has been launched, to help businesses and researchers develop innovative solutions to global challenges in the agricultural technology (‘agri-tech') sector.
The Agri-Tech Catalyst offers funding for collaborative projects, taking innovative ideas from any sector or discipline with the potential to provide an economic boost to the UK agri-tech industry, by tackling challenges in agriculture.
The scheme will help to take innovations all the way from concept to commercialisation, awarding grants for early-stage pre-industrial research feasibility studies, industrial research, and late-stage pre-experimental and experimental feasibility studies. Any UK business or academic researcher can apply.
