About Agrifood SIG

The Agrifood SIG is a forum for technology transfer professionals to navigate and overcome some of the key challenges of commercialising research-based innovation across our global food supply chain. From regenerative agriculture and aquaculture, urban farming and circular waste systems through to novel food & nutrition product development, sustainable packaging, distribution and digital traceability, the road to achieving the ultimate goal: viable, scalable spinouts and start-ups, requires a multi-diverse approach.

This group gathers to identify opportunities in collaboration with Industry and will help to mitigate the risks associated with commercialization of quality, high-tech innovations that are fit for the launch of successful pilot projects, and sustainable business ventures within the food sector.
