New Opportunities for Agritechnology

With UK’s first Agricultural Technology Strategy about to be published, following the publication of the Foresight Report The Future of Food and Farming, there has been a growing recognition of the need for the food and farming industry to embrace innovative and technology-based approaches in order to deliver ‘more with less’.

The Technology Strategy Board’s Sustainable Agriculture and Food Innovation Platform is planning to  run their next competition focusing on stimulating innovative technologies relevant to engineering and precision agriculture across the agri-food supply chain, to maximise productivity, reduce resource use efficiency and the environmental impact of food production.

The aim of this workshop is to broker novel partnerships focussed on the horticulture and potato supply chain and to explain how to formulate successful bids, in advance of the final announcement of this opportunity.
