Event details
Friday, 5 April 2019
12:00 pm – 13:30 pm
This event will be live streamed via webcast
KTN is organising sector-specific webinars to provide dedicated support to organisations developing projects for Round 8 of the Agri-Tech Catalyst.

KTN is organising three webinars to provide dedicated support to organisations developing projects for Round 8 of the Agri-Tech Catalyst funding scheme (see below), with each webinar focussing on one of the following areas: crop production, livestock and aquaculture, and food systems and nutrition.

The main focus of the webinars will be to help inform UK participants of the needs of African partners in the area covered, and African partners of the capabilities of UK partners, to aid consortia building.

The webinars will provide an overview of the Agri-Tech Catalyst funding programme, and then cover specific issues affecting Crops/Food/Livestock in Africa. During the webinars there will be opportunities for African and UK organisations to pitch their project ideas and capabilities via a message board, to facilitate consortia building.
