SmithsonHill proudly sponsors Cambridge Independent AgriTech Company of the Year award

In the Cambridge Independent Science and Technology Awards, AgriTech Company of the Year award sponsored by SmithsonHill, judges are looking for innovative AgriTech solutions which bring cutting edge technologies together with agriculture and farming. The new technologies proposed for the award can address any agricultural challenge, but we are particularly interested in those which bring technologies from other sectors into crop production.

Sectors including Biosciences, Health and Life Sciences, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Engineering can be brought together to create new Agricultural Technologies, or AgriTech.  By integrating AgriTech into farming we can increase crop production and yields; minimise input use and costs and reduce global food waste. Cambridge University have just announced that they will be part of a regional research centre to drive AgriTech research and innovation through to commercialisation.

SmithsonHill are at the forefront of the UK’s growing AgriTech Sector, and their proposals for ARC – a site for AgriTech companies in Cambridge will ensure that Cambridge will have the dedicated space to be at the heart of the emerging AgriTech cluster locally, nationally and globally.

Emma Fletcher, MD of SmithsonHill commented, “There is an explosion of AgriTech at the moment. SmithsonHill are at the forefront of this growing AgriTech Sector, and their proposals for ARC – a site for AgriTech companies in Cambridge will ensure that Cambridge will have the dedicated space to be at the heart of the emerging AgriTech cluster. We are pleased to support this award celebrates the growing cluster based in Cambridge.  The judges will be looking for innovative AgriTech solutions which bring cutting edge technologies together with agriculture and farming.  The new technologies proposed for the award can address any agricultural crop production challenge, but we are particularly interested in those which bring technologies from other sectors into agriculture.”
