Event Details

Innovate UK’s Global Business Innovation Programme (GBIP), delivered by Enterprise Europe Network, is looking for innovative UK SMEs in the agricultural technology sector.

 

The programme is aimed at Agri-Tech and Satellite Application companies involved in yield forecasting, crop production and harvesting, livestock management, analytics, climate monitoring, imagery and mapping. There will be particular interest in technology associated with precision agriculture, resource  efficiency, data management and integration, net carbon reduction, hardware, AI and robotics. The programme aims to connect delegates with entrepreneurs, industry leaders, academia and government. Successful applicants will be supported through a structured programme, which includes an eleven day visit to Australia.

 

During the visit delegates will attend evokeAG., which is Asia-Pacific’s largest Agri-Food tech event, covering three main themes: food, farm, and future. evokeAG. is an immersive experience delivering diverse topics and cutting edge innovation from across the region and around the world. It is the only event of its type where people come together to connect, collaborate and evolve all things agriculture.

 

The programme also includes visits to organisations with innovative agricultural technologies, with the aim of creating and promoting opportunities for partnering and collaboration. Delegates will receive bespoke one-to-one support from Enterprise Europe Network Advisers to help them exploit the opportunity before, during and after the visit as part of the full programme.

 

WHY AUSTRALIA?

 

The support for digital technologies has grown significantly with Rural Research and Development Corporations (RDCs) and Government contributing to provide funding and developing programmes that support innovation. This includes the Cooperative Research Centres (CRCs) programme. CRCs are public-private research centres that emphasise the importance of collaborative arrangements for commercialisation and technology transfer. There are currently eleven accelerators, pre-accelerators and incubators supporting Agri-Food tech startups in Australia.


Emerging technologies have already proven to be a key driver in the future sustainability and profitability of Australian agriculture. Adoption rates of Satellite Technology in cropping operations in Australia are amongst the highest in the world, the Australia Agriculture 4.0 programme targets production growth through technology.
