In October 2021, Defra will launch the first competitions of our new Industry-led R&D Partnerships fund. This is the first of three different funds to launch in Defra’s new Farming Innovation Programme.
Leah is a policy adviser in the Farming Innovation team.
The team is responsible for developing Defra’s plan for a new Research & Development package for England as part of the measures to increase innovation and boost sustainable productivity in agriculture.
To improve productivity and reduce the negative impact of agriculture on our environment, we need to think about innovation and invest in research and development. In this post, I'll give an overview of the Farming Innovation Pathways competition, which is open for applications.
