Posted on: 08/04/2020

This webinar will present the findings of the output report following the Expert Mission to New Zealand in March 2019.

In March 2019, an Expert Mission travelled to Wellington, Palmerston North, Christchurch and Auckland. This Mission sought to inform the UK’s international Agri-Tech Innovation strategy by exploring the New Zealand agri-tech landscape and examining opportunities to collaborate with New Zealand organisations. The UK delegation held meetings with a number of New Zealand stakeholders from industry, academia and government and insights from the Mission can be found in the Innovate UK Global Expert Mission ‘Agri-Tech Innovation in New Zealand 2019’ dissemination report.


The webinar will take place on the 27 April 2020 at 2pm (UK time).
