The current Agri-tech Cornwall Innovation Grant funding is due to finish at the end of March 2021 however there are still some funds available to support small revenue focused research, development and innovation (RD&I) ventures.
The programme has supported numerous projects in accessing commercial marketing advice for R&D, feasibility studies, niche specialist advice and sourced consultancy. The funding is available to help in the development of products or services that aim to make agriculture more efficient and productive, resilient and better able to enhance and protect the natural environment and those that farm it.
Grants start from £2,500 up to £8,000 but potential applicants will need to be quick, with the deadline of the programme fast approaching all projects must be complete and ready to claim by January 2021!
If you are an innovative company and think you have an eligible project please contact a member of the Innovation Grant team at: firstname.lastname@example.org or on: 01872 322672 to submit an enquiry.
If you have an Agri-tech solution which involves the purchase of capital items (e.g. equipment) the project is still inviting you to make contact and should the programme be given an extension you will be added to a waiting list.
