CHAP Partners get together for one big family day

CHAP Partners get together for one big family day

Representatives from CHAP Partners gathered at Stockbridge Technology Centre for an exchange of ideas and an opportunity to work up some new concepts for project proposals. Each scientist was given ten minutes to talk through their technology and to highlight how they could work with other Partners. This was followed by a workshop during which some promising ideas emerged. CEO, Fraser Black, reported that the day exceeded his expectations and he said that it was great to see everyone getting along so well and being so ready to exchange ideas and pool expertise.

The ideas included developing a CHAP comprehensive package to generate data in support of the registration of biocontrol products; R&D opportunities in the areas of Integrated Pest Management (particularly slugs), remote crop sensing, sustainable production approaches, reduction of mycotoxins in the food chain and the potential of vertical farming systems to consistently deliver high traceability produce to stringent crop quality criteria. Other ideas included developing the concept of microbiomes for agriculture use and a project looking at network sensors and their wider application. These ideas will now be taken forward and, where possible, developed and submitted for funding opportunities.
