Meet the team


The AGRI Project team is made up of a number of Innovation specialists from both universities. The expertise that our specialists have is vast and covers a wide array of areas in which we can provide support. In order to ensure the support and knowledge we provide is of the highest quality, we are also able to work with the academics from both universities to enable us to provide an even more in depth and specialised service that truly is bespoke to each company’s individual needs.
