Agri-TechE for Researchers

Membership can increase the impact of exciting discoveries, enhance funding potential, and create collaborations with new project partners.

How could membership help you?

Members include Universities and Institutes carrying out discovery and applied science, as well as commercial organisations doing targeted, contract R&D and those conducting field scale trials.

As a member, you’ll benefit from:

  • Increasing your pathway to impact. Through our events, site visits and Research Digest articles, we share your discoveries to your target audience of stakeholders.
  • Research partnerships to leverage new funding. Our membership has a high success rate across funding calls and there is always appetite to discuss projects.
  • Support for spinouts and commercialisation. Early stage companies can take root in our network, gaining links to relevant funding, identifying support to shape your commercial proposition, and helping you bring your idea to market.

Agri-TechE has opened a window to the needs of companies across the agricultural supply chain. It helps us to refine the projects that move our research findings towards their deployment in agricultural practice. We find new commercial partnerships and discover the unseen wealth of on-farm and post farm gate innovation. We identified a new opportunity for our pea research programme which led to the formation of new a joint venture company.

Agri-Tech is about knowing people. It’s also an inter-disciplinary subject where you need to know about agriculture, food, and all aspects of technology. The only way you can get that information is through networking. And that is what Agri-TechE is all about. Agri-TechE’s network is UK-wide and international. It’s one global family that connects us to the whole thing, it’s brilliant!”

Membership of Agri-TechE has given us some fantastic opportunities to share our work in agri-tech with relevant audiences.

Agri-TechE is one of the largest and longest established networks in Europe, facilitating exchange of ideas between key stakeholders over the last 10 years. If the UK wants to fulfil its ambitions of improving agricultural productivity whilst reducing environmental impact, we need to fuel closer collaboration between a wide variety of players, including academics, farmers, breeders, producers, consumers, businesses, policymakers, regulators and the public. Therefore, the role of networks such as Agri-TechE will become even more crucial over the next decade.
