Agri-tech Growth and Resources for Innovation

Key sectors

Farming, fisheries & forestry Food & drink

Focusing on companies involved with agri-tech, food and drink manufacturing and food and drink logistics in the Marches LEP area, AGRI provides support in the form of business advice and technological prototype development. AGRI seeks to address barriers to business growth in the agri-food industry by providing an innovation support service focused directly on the companies own innovation requirements. Support involves a combination of workshops and one-to-one business advice, which can then progress to include assistance with technology development or application. AGRI also facilitates the development of a local network for peer advice and collaboration through events held at the Agricultural Engineering Precision Innovation Centre (Agri-EPI). The support is delivered by Aston University and Harper Adams University.
