The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) are holding an event titled “Innovation in Greenhouses and Polytunnels - Cross-sectoral opportunities”.
This will be held on 11th November in London.
Both greenhouse and polytunnels are becoming more important for the UK’s food supply. This event will bring together different sectors including end users of glasshouses and polytunnels, with innovators from materials, lighting, energy, robotics and ICT to identify innovation opportunities, and to help find solutions for the challenges the industry faces and new opportunities to increase efficiency.
The final programme is still to be confirmed but speakers will include:
1) Large scale users of greenhouses and polytunnels - such as large scale protected edibles growers, who will describe their challenges requiring new innovative solutions
2) Technology providers from a number of disciplines - with new technologies relevant to the sector.
3) Funders - who will describe current Innovate UK funding opportunities to progress new project ideas identified
A key element of the day will be creating new connections that can lead to collaborative projects and there will be plenty of time for networking.
