The Agri-Tech Catalyst supports innovative ideas from any sector or discipline, which can help make the UK a world leader in agricultural technology, innovation and sustainability. Industrial research awards enable applicants to evaluate the technical feasibility of an idea and establish proof-of-concept and potential routes to exploitation. Such proposals will embrace longer-term studies in all relevant disciplines that demonstrate the potential to advance the sustainable intensification of agriculture and have an economic impact. As with feasibility studies, the work included in these projects will be dependent on the proposed application of the technology and the nature of the technological solution. Registration is required to enter this competition. Please note that registration will close 1 week before the competition application deadline.

The UK Strategy for Agricultural Technologies, published in July 2013, committed £90m to establish centres for agricultural innovation. The aim of this agri-tech strategy is to encourage businesses to develop, adapt and exploit new technologies. Government has already allocated £10m to set up the first centre for agricultural innovation in the area of agricultural informatics and sustainability metrics. We are now looking for prospective consortia to form other centres for agricultural innovation.
