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.
