agri-tech cornwall and isles of scilly Plymouth University
The University of Plymouth has a strong heritage and expertise in the Agri-Tech sector. Seale-Hayne Agricultural College merged with the University in 1989 when it was Plymouth Polytechnic. During this time, it significantly expanded its student numbers and agriculture related courses.
The Agri-Tech Cornwall project is a step towards achieving these targets. The University of Plymouth are proud to be a partner on this £10million part-funded ERDF initiative to help the United Kingdom become a world leader in agricultural technology and sustainability.
Researchers from the University of Plymouth will share their expertise with the sector and collaborate with small and medium-sized Cornish companies to research the future sustainability of the sector.
