Seeking to support and enhance productivity in the agri-food sectors, the University of Lincoln has today announced the creation of the Lincoln Institute for Agri-food Technology.

The Institute will capitalise on the University’s growing research and educational activity in the agri-tech and food sectors, including food manufacturing, agri-robotics, agronomy and animal science.

Professor Mary Stuart, Vice-Chancellor at the University of Lincoln, said: “Productivity is a key aim for the UK Government and is vital to the success of our economy. The agri-food sectors are at the heart of our county of Lincolnshire and productivity lies at the heart of these sectors.  Innovations in autonomous systems and robotics and other scientific innovations will drive that productivity.”
