Agri-EPI Centre Stakeholder Day 2018

27th June 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Stakeholder Day June 2018

Please join us at the Agri-EPI Stakeholder Day on June 27th 2018. The day provides an update on new developments in the industry and Agri-EPI Centre with presentations about cutting-edge research and new projects. It will be a valuable networking opportunity to build the Agri-EPI member community and stimulate new partnerships.

Sign up for the Member Pitch

For the first time, we introduce the ‘member pitch’ in the programme. You can sign up to give a 2-minute pitch to introduce your organisation to other Agri-EPI members and increase commercial collaboration. We close off the day with a guided tour, where you have the chance to be one of the first to view our state-of-the-art facilities on the campus of Cranfield University.

Registration

Please register for via Eventbrite.
