The Rothamsted Centre for Research and Enterprise provides access to world-class researchers and a wealth of on-site scientific facilities and services to support innovation in agri-biotech. It offers an unique environment in which research and knowledge intensive agri-tech companies can blossom.

They have two upcoming seminars which you are invited to attend.

The first seminar, 'It pays to innovate', will be held on the 19th May 2014 08:45 to 10:45 at Rothamsted Centre for Research and Enterprise.

For innovative agri-tech companies, whether start-up or established, sourcing development funding for concept through to commercialisation can be both expensive and time consuming.

There are, however, a number of Government schemes that reward innovation seeking to advance the fields of science and technology. In fact, much of the work you may be undertaking to establish, develop and grow your business may qualify for significant and timely cash injections or tax relief.

If you are a potentially high-growth or well established business in the agri-biotech sector, join us at this FREE breakfast seminar to:

  • Learn about the Patent Box, R&D Tax Credits and Capital Allowances
  • Find out what you need to do to benefit from them if your business qualifies for the schemes

The seminar will be led by Annie Hunter, of HOW 2 – Business Solutions, who provide free information and advice to companieslooking to grow with less tax and less risk. Annie will be available after the seminar for 1-2-1 consultations. Please email annie.hunter@ggtc.co.uk if you want to book an appointment with her.

This seminar is part of a series of events organised by the Rothamsted Centre for Research and Enterprise. For more information and to book your place, please click here.

The second seminar, 'EU funding for agri-tech SMEs', will be held on 3rd June 2014 from 08:45 to 10:45 at Rothamsted Centre for Research and Enterprise.

Horizon 2020, the €79 billion, seven-year EU programme for research & development, offers more opportunities for businesses than any previous programme.

  • Learn about the key features of Horizon 2020, including the SME Instrument

The seminar will be led by Roger Hetherington from the Enterprise Europe Network, which provides free services to SMEs looking to access Horizon 2020.
