As part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, Government will invest up to £90m in the new funding opportunity “Transforming Food Production”.

This briefing event relates to the first call for Innovation projects, with £20m available in the area of productive and sustainable crop and ruminant agricultural systems.

UK Research and Innovation, through the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, will invest up to £20 million in innovation projects. These must improve productivity and sustainability by developing enhanced decision support, precision agriculture technology solutions and systems for crop and ruminant agriculture.

Full details about the call will be provided at the event, and will also be online in due course via the Innovation Funding Service website: https://apply-for-innovation-funding.service.gov.uk/competition/search
