Ceres Agri-Tech is pleased to announce that the February 2024 Call for Lincam Ceres Agri-Tech Projects and Proof of Concept Awards are now open for applications from researchers at UK HEIs and EPSRC approved RTOs.

In this February 2024 Call, Lincam Ceres Agri-Tech is seeking Expressions of Interest for EPSRC scope technologies that will significantly improve crop production in the Lincam region and which have the potential for global impact.

We have particular interest in technologies that address the following priorities for the crop production sector in the LINCAM area:

  • Facilitate the transition to Net Zero crop production, e.g. through addressing energy efficiency and supporting the transition to sustainable energy sources;
  • Enable better sustainable soil and water management;
  • Increase labour productivity in intensive crop production.

There are two award streams

  • Lincam Ceres Agri-Tech Proof of Concept ranging from £5,000 to £20,000 (no FECC)
  • Lincam Ceres Agri-Tech Project Awardranging from £20,000 to £150,000 (no FEC)

Proposals are assessed by a pitch to the Ceres Investment Committee.
