Innovate UK is the UK’s innovation agency. It works with people, companies and partner organisations to find and drive the science and technology innovations that will grow the UK economy – delivering productivity, new jobs and exports and keeping the UK globally competitive in the race for future prosperity.
Agriculture and food is one priority innovation area on which Innovate UK focuses. It has delivered a sustainable agriculture and food ‘innovation platform’ supporting business-led projects covering crop productivity, sustainable livestock production, waste management and greenhouse gas reduction. It continues to target support across the agrifood supply chain while developing its future strategy. In addition, and as part of the Government’s Agri-Tech industrial strategy, Innovate UK manages the Agri-Tech Catalyst programme with the BBSRC, and is working with BIS, Defra and the BBSRC to establish new centres for agricultural innovation.
