Do you have Agri-Food challenges which a mathematical scientist could help with?

  • Are you an SME working in the Agri-food Sector?
  • Do you have data challenges? Modelling problems? Anything which could benefit from quantitative rigour?
  • If so, you probably have challenges which a mathematical scientist could help you with!
  • Would you like three-days FREE support?
  • Read on...

 

In brief....

The Knowledge Transfer Network and Innovate UK will be hosting a short Study Group to support SME's in Agri-food to get access to the excellence the UK boasts in the mathematical science (a similar Study Group was run for manufacturing in July 2016 - see here for details).

The provisional timing for this will be in January 2017 in a location TBC.
