The GCRF Agrifood Africa Innovation Awards Round 3 is a £1.3 million funding scheme for collaborative UK/Africa projects to address African AgriFood challenges. Successful applicants will receive a grant of either £20,000 or £30,000 to support their collaborative UK/Africa AgriFood research and innovation project.

Projects should address the AgriFood challenges of an African organisation through a defined research/innovation project between one UK and one African organisation.

Innovation Awards can either:

  • Support a new collaborative Project in an area within the scope of the GCRF AgriFood Africa programme
  • Provide follow-on funding to organisations funded by the GCRF AgriFood Africa Programme in the past. Projects should be to further build upon innovations or to solve new African AgriFood challenges identified during the previously funded project.

We want to encourage projects which include a business as one of the partners (commercial companies, farmer cooperatives, producer organisations etc.) to stimulate business-led innovation.

Innovate UK KTN is delivering these Innovation Awards as part of the Global Challenges Research Fund AgriFood Africa Programme.
