Through our continuous engagement with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) Science and Innovation Network in Beijing and Innovate UK, we have been working under the 2016 China Rural Technology Development Centre – Innovate UK Memorandum of Understanding to develop partnerships with major academies, research institutes and industry.

We are building a collaboration framework between N8 AgriFood and China, which will support both basic research co-operation, as well as larger partnership platforms for technology transfer.

In June 2019, we signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Jiangsu Academy of Agricultural Sciences, which consolidated our partnership.

  • Facilitate joint research and commercialisation of technologies.
