The AGRI project provides a free innovation support service to eligible SMEs within the Marches region who want to become more innovative or active within the Agri-tech sector.

The AGRI project is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund and is being run in partnership between Harper Adams University and Aston University.

Eligible businesses can be from inside or outside of the Agri-tech sector but must have the goal of wanting to develop within the sector through innovation, technology development or application.

Innovation Specialists from the partner universities will work with each company in a one-to-one capacity to understand the individual goals and aspirations of the business and how these fit into both existing and new markets for Agri-tech. The review will typically take two days and will give the project team opportunity to determine the best course of action and method to achieve the outlined goals of the business. There may also be further scope for longer term collaboration with the project team leading to development of prototypes and/or management processes.
