UK Agri-Tech Centres

The four UK Agri-Tech Centres of Agricultural Innovation are the result of a unique collaboration involving UK Government, industry and academia to drive greater efficiency, resilience and wealth across the agri-food sector. Supported by Innovate UK, the Centres are harnessing leading UK research and expertise and providing new facilities to:

  • Join-up existing excellence and invest in new innovative research and resources that don’t exist elsewhere
  • Address challenges that no single part of the sector can address alone
  • Open up opportunities for transformational change
  • Position the UK as a global leader in sustainable food production

The Centres are:

  • Agrimetrics: the world’s first agri-food data marketplace
  • Agri-EPI: enabling sustainability, productivity and resilience through technology
  • Centre for Innovation Excellence in Livestock (CIEL): providing the front door for research and innovation with one of the world’s largest livestock research alliances
  • Crop Health and Protection (CHAP) – improving crop and soil health & productivity
