Supporting UK organisations in establishing strong collaborations with Chinese partners in the field of agricultural technologies.
In the context of upcoming UK-China joint funding opportunities, Innovate UK and the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST) would like to support UK organisations in establishing strong collaborations with Chinese partners in the field of agricultural technologies. We recognise that having the opportunity to meet potential partners and discuss potential collaborations ahead of submitting a joint funding application would be valuable.
For this reason, the Knowledge Transfer Network and the British Embassy Beijing are organising a Partnership Building Visit to China tentatively between 2 – 8 July 2017 (inclusive of travel time).
The KTN would like to invite applications from leading UK businesses and research organisations from the following agri-tech sectors interested in this partnering opportunity:
- Precision agriculture, agriculture digitisation and decision management tools
- Improving the efficiency of sustainable agricultural production
- Agricultural products processing
As well as providing UK stakeholders with opportunities to meet potential partners, we also aim to provide a good first-hand appreciation of related agricultural challenges that China faces and the context of what it means to work with counterparts in China.
