Merger of Agri-Tech Centres paves way for future Catapult ambitions
Innovate UK is working with its three Agri-Tech Centres to create a new integrated capability. The three Agri-Tech Centres are Crop Health and Protection, Centre for Innovation Excellence in Livestock and Agricultural Engineering, Precision and Innovation Centre. This new single entity will facilitate a stronger cross-sectoral approach and drive better outcomes for the agri-tech sector across innovation, commercialisation, and adoption, as well as research. Together they are being invited to develop a proposal to establish an agri-tech Catapult, to complement the work of the existing nine Catapults.
