Supporting Innovation And Collaboration In The Agri-Food Sector

£2.3 million competition for Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

A half day event will provide information about a £2.3 million competition to establish Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) to improve the competitiveness of the agri-food supply chain. Invest NI, the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) and others are running the competition for the KTP which involves a partnership between a business, an academic institution and a recently qualified graduate.

At this event, you will also hear about the £70 million of government funding available from the Agri-Tech Catalyst.

The aim of both initiatives is to give businesses access to the UK knowledge base so that they can develop innovative solutions to global challenges facing the agri-food sector.
