ISCF Transforming Food Production funding events

There have been several funding calls recently from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF), which sets out Grand Challenges to put the UK at the forefront of the industries of the future and ensure that the UK takes full advantage of major global changes, to improve people’s lives and the country’s productivity.

A key component of the ISCF Transforming Food Production (TFP) funding mechanism is the Science and Technology into Practice programme, made up of feasibility and demonstration competitions, and TFP is recognised as a key driver of Clean Growth under the Industrial Strategy. The programme aims to increase engagement and collaboration between R&D, end-users and all stakeholders.

Eligible industrial and academic participants can apply for a share of up to £15 million to provide end users with evidence of technical feasibility and economic viability or demonstrate near market solutions. This funding is from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF).

To be eligible to apply for ISCF Transforming Food Production funding, your solution must have the potential to improve productivity and sustainability. It must aim to result in a significant reduction of emissions from agriculture, contributing to the target of net zero emissions from agriculture by 2040.

For anyone who would welcome assistance in making a funding application there are three events, in the North, South and Midlands.

This event will allow attendees to;

  • Be informed about the competition scope and consortia eligibility
  • Focus on end user participation
  • Be informed about and encouraged to collaborate with different sectors
  • Hints and tips on submitting a successful proposal
  • Have the opportunity for businesses, academia, RTO to pitch their ideas, skills and partner needs to bid into TFP
  • Make valuable connections

The Midlands event is in Stoneleigh, near Coventry, on November 14th, while the South event is in Islington, London on November 18th and the North event is in York on November 27th.

All events are free to attend, but places do need to be booked in advance, follow the links for more information.
