Agri-Tech Catalyst Competition Round 10 - Key information

Posted on 29/07/2020

Open to UK and African organisations who want to collaborate on an Agri-Tech project around food chain innovation in Africa.

Are you working on Agri-Tech innovation and would like to implement some of your ideas in Africa?

If so, you could get funding thanks to the Agri-Tech Catalyst Competition, Round 10.

 

The funding available through the competition is for Agri-Tech projects on food chain innovations in Africa. These projects need to be delivered by a UK and an African organisation working together.

 

This funding has 3 strands, all open for applications now and closing on 21 October 2020 at 11am.

Early stage feasibility studies
Your total eligible project costs must be between £100,000 and £500,000.
Mid stage industrial research
Your total eligible project costs must be between £250,000 and £1 million.
Late stage experimental development
Your total eligible project costs must be between £150,000 and £800,000.

 

Your proposal must show the potential to have a positive impact on poverty through the uptake of agricultural and food systems technology and innovation.

 

You can choose from one or more of the following areas:

  • primary crop and livestock production, including aquaculture
  • non-food uses of crops, excluding ornamentals
  • challenges in food processing, distribution or storage, and value addition (such as through a change in the physical state or form of the product)
  • improving the availability and accessibility of safe, healthy and nutritious foods

 

Your project’s innovations must:

  • be sustainable in the context of environmental challenges such as climate change and resource scarcity
  • minimise negative effects such as pollution, food loss and waste
  • promote safe, healthy and nutritious diets
