Agri-EPI, Crop Health & Protection (CHAP) and Centre for Innovation Excellence in Livestock (CIEL), invite you to attend a virtual workshop series on research and innovation priorities in UK farming.
This workshop will be centred on mixed farming and will last approximately 90 minutes.
The need for innovation in agriculture has never been more urgent. Our industry is grappling with rapid changes in policy and trade, heightened volatility, and climate and nature crises.
We want to hear your views and those from all major agricultural sectors, across a wide diversity of farming systems.
Research providers and funders need to understand the industry’s priorities on the ground. We want to know what research would be most useful to your business, now and in the long term.
As a group of farming and research organisations, we are teaming up to understand research and innovation priorities that you as farmers and growers are experiencing across the UK. This work builds on the Feeding the Future review ten years ago, which was updated in 2017. This had a substantial impact on government research funding in agriculture to date.
We are inviting you to join because of your knowledge and experience in the sector is invaluable to its’ future, and the direction of travel for research.
This is one of several workshops that we and other organisations such as the NFU, AHDB, LEAF are hosting so please attend the most convenient to yourself.
