Fund to Improve Farming Productivity
New £5 Million Fund to Improve Farming Productivity (England)
Grants of £5,000 to £150,000 are available from the £5 million European Innovation Partnership for Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability (EIP-agri) fund.
It will be used to support projects that boost productivity in the livestock, arable, horticultural and forestry sectors and create ground-breaking new technology. Projects can run for up to three years to encourage new farming techniques, as well as improve the sustainability of the farming and forestry sectors. Before submitting an application, applicants must send in a 300 word outline for their idea including the goals of the plan, the problem it will solve, and how it can be expected to benefit productivity and sustainable resource management. If the project fits the criteria the applicant will then be sent the application form.
The EIP-agri fund will close to applications on the 8th September 2017.
