The work of the Agri-Tech Centres is to be showcased in a prestigious event, hosted by the Knowledge Transfer Network on behalf of Innovate UK. Agrimetrics will be highlighting its capabilities in big data including smart supply chains.
The UK's Agri-Tech Centres offer a new collaborative model for interaction between the agri-tech sector and government and offer cutting-edge capability in Crops, Livestock, Precision Agriculture and Data.
The event is designed to enable key decision makers from across the Agri-Food supply chain to find out more about the services and facilities offered by the centres and how to work with them.
The event will also provide an opportunity to hear about funding opportunities for Agri-Tech R&D, including an update on the ISCF "Transforming food production" £90m funding call announced last week.
There will be networking with key people from across the agri-food industry.
As part of the 2013 Strategy for Agricultural Technologies the UK Government provided funding for four Centres for Agricultural Innovation (or Agri-Tech Centres
) – Agrimetrics, the Centre for Crop Health and Protection (CHAP), the Centre for Innovation Excellence in Livestock (CIEL), and the Agricultural Engineering Precision Innovation Centre (Agri-EPI).
The event will be held on 21 March 2018 at the Agri-EPI Centre Hub, one of the Agri-Tech Centres, located at Harper Adams University
, near Newport, Shropshire TF10 8NB. The campus is situated off the B5062 from Newport to Shrewsbury.
Please note that places at this event are strictly limited, and attendance is by invitation only. Please contact Chris Danks (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to attend and have yet to receive an invite.
