Ceres is pleased to announce that the latest round of Ceres Proof-of-Concept Awards is now open for applications from researchers at Ceres partner universities. If you need proof-of-concept data to start commercialising your agri-tech innovation, we want to hear from you.
Ranging from £5,000 to £20,000, Ceres Proof-of-Concept Awards support the commercialisation of plant agri-tech innovations, e.g. through proof-of-principle work, prototype development or small-scale field or plant trials. Proposals are assessed based on a 6-minute pitch to the Ceres Investment Committee, with funding decisions made on the day.
Interested? Apply by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org with an outline proposal. We will work together with you to help develop your idea and pitchdeck. Finalised pitchdecks need to be submitted to our judging panel by Wednesday 28th April, so if you have a good project idea, please get in touch with us as soon as possible to allow time for us to support you in creating your pitchdeck.
