The Agritech Innovation Grants are managed and administered by Cornwall Development Company. These grants range from £2,500 to £50,000 and are available for eligible small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) based in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly and can be used towards the cost of a range of Research, Development and Innovation and (RD&I) activities.

These can include 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

There are two dedicated Agri-tech Business Engagement Managers in place; Caroline Hanlan and Liz Gilbert, who can offer businesses support and advice with applications and procurement, ensuring eligibility of activity. Both Liz and Caroline, have extensive experience within the rural and farm business sector in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

If the Innovation Grant is not the most suitable form of support Caroline and Liz can also put businesses in contact with the other projects or partners in the Cornwall Agri-tech project to see if a larger collaborative research project would be a better way of achieving the necessary RD&I outcomes.
