The NRI, renowned for its world-leading research and training programmes, focuses on driving advancements in agriculture, environment, food production and safety, along with sustainable developments. Its inclusion in CHAP’s ever-growing partner network will undoubtedly be a valuable addition.
Fraser Black, CEO at CHAP, said: “We are thrilled to announce the partnership between CHAP and NRI, whose extensive expertise in natural resources and the plant health research align with our goal to drive forward innovation in the agri-tech sector.
“We look forward to working on collaborative projects with the NRI, aiming to elevate UK agri-tech to a world-class level while instilling sustainability and resilience within our food systems.”
With an established presence in developing countries across the globe coupled with its impactful research partnerships, the NRI has succeeded in developing and sharing key knowledge and technologies throughout the industry. This has led to a significant impact at the farmer and community level alongside the international research community.
Dr Nazanin Zand, Head of Food and Markets at NRI, said: “Since its establishment more than 125 years ago, NRI has focused on supporting agriculture in tropical and sub-tropical regions. More recently we have increasingly been using our knowledge to support the UK agri-tech community, especially in the areas of biological control and crop post-harvest handling.
“We are excited by the prospect of working more closely in partnership with CHAP.”
