£5 million of funding is now available under the latest phase of European Innovation Parthership for Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability (EIP-agri) grants.

 

Aimed at boosting productivity in the livestock, arable, horticultural and forestry sectors, the funding will provide opportunities to create ground-breaking new technology and ultimately unlock innovation in the farming industry.

 

Commenting on the scheme, Farming Minister George Eustice said: "This fund will enable groups to come together to test and implement exciting new ideas to solve problems and increase farm and forest productivity.

 

"By looking to other sectors, such as medicine, for inspiration and knowledge transfer, it facilitates even greater innovation.

 

"I look forward to seeing the interesting work that will follow to boost and protect rural productivity."

 

Grants worth between £5,000 and £150,000 will be available for projects for up to three years.
