agri-tech cornwall and isles of scilly innovation grants

The Agri-tech Cornwall Project will not be taking any new Innovation Grant enquiries on from 1st September as we will be focusing on existing projects only. The Agritech Innovation Grants are managed and administered by Cornwall Development Company. Starting at £2,500 these grants were available for eligible small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) based in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly and used towards the cost of a range of Research, Development and Innovation and (RD&I) activities.

These included feasibility studies, commissioning specialist research, the purchase of equipment for RD&I related activity, or to cover consultancy costs to undertake an RD&I project.

Eligible businesses must be operating within the scope of the Agritech project and there are four main research strands identified:

- Animal Health and welfare in livestock
- Maximising soil, water and nutrient use efficiency for sustainable crop and livestock production
- Improving the productivity of speciality crop production
- Utilising technology to drive agri-tech productivity and innovation
