The Innovate UK Agri-Tech Innovation Centres

The four Centres for Agricultural Innovation are a collaborative model between the agri-tech sector and government.

The centres will help the UK:

  • turn agricultural innovation into commercial opportunities for UK businesses
  • encourage inward investment
  • improve farming practice

The centres will:

  • improve the economic performance of UK farming through the development and uptake of technologies, knowledge, and practices
  • recreate UK leadership in this area by joining-up existing excellence
  • resolve challenges that no one part of the sector can address alone
  • open up opportunities for transformational change in the sector not possible in current structures
