Ceres Agri-Tech opens second round of Proof-of-Concept Awards

Ceres is pleased to announce that the second round of Ceres Proof-of-Concept Awards are now open for 2021 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 info@ceresagritech.org with an outline proposal no later than 28th January 2021; we can help to develop your idea and pitchdeck. For further information, visit our dedicated web page at https://www.ceresagritech.org/proof-of-concept-awards/
