Overview
The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) is organising a briefing and consortia-building workshop to promote Round 9 of the Agri-Tech Catalyst Competition

There is up to £5 million of funding available from the Department for International Development (DFID) and the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) for early-stage feasibility studies, mid stage industrial research and late-stage experimental development.
