Agri-tech Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly

Agri-tech Cornwall was a £11.8m initiative to create a new sector for the Cornish economy, helping the United Kingdom become a world leader in agricultural technology, and sustainability..

We have supported ambitious small and medium-sized Cornish companies develop innovations to improve efficiency, profitability and resilience in the agricultural sector – in field or moor, forest or shore.

Agricultural technologies can be any innovation that makes agriculture more efficient and productive, more resilient and secure, more profitable, and better able to enhance and protect the natural environment and those that farm it.

The project was funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

This was a unique opportunity to develop and apply new technologies assisted by project partners, research grants and graduate placements.
