Innovate UK has launched a Global Business Innovation Programme (GBIP) to help UK agritech small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) pursue growth and innovation opportunities through collaboration with New Zealand peers. The arrangement will strengthen the UK and New Zealand’s collaboration in research, science and innovation.

Cooperative activity under the arrangement is expected to be wide-ranging, from joint research and development (R&D) of new technologies, to visits and exchanges of scientists, and innovation missions between businesses.

The programme will help up to 15 innovation-focused UK businesses that will be developing solutions to common industry challenges, such as the need for more efficient and precision farming through:

  • robotics
  • satellite data.

SMEs can apply to the GBIP on the Innovate UK EDGE website and applications close on 31 August.
