Event description

Description

This event is being held in collaboration with Agri Tech East as part of Agri Tech Week 2019.

With an estimated 9 billion people inhabiting the planet by 2050, it is now, more than ever, apparent that feeding this rapidly expanding population will require multiple approaches to increase crop production.

Through innovative concepts derived from multiple disciplines this event will demonstrate the new agri-technologies and methodologies made possible by sharing expertise, platforms and funding opportunities from our academics with agritech companies based on the Norwich Research Park.

We invite you to register your interest to attend this upcoming collaboration event. You can find out more about the breadth of expertise, value-added support, innovation and funding opportunities available to companies from spin-out to SME and those that are more established. If you are looking for new ideas, collaborations, or even new space to relocate we would like to meet you!

If you are willing to relocate your business, we are happy to facilitate new collaborations within the Norwich Research Park.

Expression of Interest: Please note that this system registration is an expression of interest only and does not guarantee an automatic place at the event – a separate confirmation email will be sent to you if your place has been accepted.
