A briefing event for the Transforming Food Production programme will take place in Northern Ireland on 28 November 2019.

The Industrial Strategy sets out Grand Challenges to put the UK at the forefront of the industries of the future, ensuring that the UK takes advantage of major global changes, improving people’s lives and the country’s productivity.

 

The Transforming Food Production programme is part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, and aims to integrate current world-class UK capabilities (digital technologies, artificial intelligence, engineering, biological, environmental and social sciences) into precision approaches both within new novel production systems and traditional agricultural systems to target net zero emissions.

 

A briefing event on 28 November 2019 at the CAFRE Loughry Campus in Cookstown, Northern Ireland, will provide attendees with detailed information about various elements of the Transforming Food Production programme including the Future Food Production Systems competition, the China:UK precision for enhancing agricultural productivity competition and the Science and Technology in Practice competition.
