STEM Learning Education/Business Forum: Raising the profile of Agri-tech in Education RH995 / L01
The UK’s agri-tech sector currently contributes around £14.3 billion towards the economy with companies and researchers pioneering technology from drones to 3D printing.
Business Secretary Greg Clark has said of the sector: “The agricultural sector is the biggest industrial sector in the UK, Employing almost 4 million people and larger than the automotive and aerospace sectors combined. With the technological revolution that is happening, the skills of the farming workforce need to keep pace. New technologies require new abilities and today’s modern British farmer is a Swiss-Army-Knife of skills. An engineer, an environmentalist, a data scientist a biochemist, an energy producer, a tourism entrepreneur, and an investor too.”

The event is aimed at representatives from businesses and organisations related to the Agri-tech sector from across the region and will focus on how working collaboratively we can ensure that the sector can secure the skills needed for the future.
