How you can benefit from the Eastern Agri-Tech Innovation Hub

By becoming a licensee at the Hub

  • Join The Hub Community; you could enter into a licencee agreement with NIAB at a competitive rate. The licence can be from 3 months to a year, with renewal on agreement
  • Ask for help to stage an event to showcase your innovation or to meet potential partners or customers
  • Talk to us about field or other trials in horticulture, agriculture or ornamentals
  • Ask us about funding possibilities in the area; such as Eastern Agritech grants
  • Hire a meeting room on site to meet with important customers or partners
  • Lease shared office space
  • Work with us in collaborative bids for research or innovation funding
  • Ask for advice or introductions to others operating in your scientific area of interest
  • Seek bespoke training or join one of our regular training events with ARTIS
  • Enquire about Apprenticeships either with NIAB or our partners.

Alternatively you can join the Innovation Hub Club

If you do not need to rent space at the Hub as a licensee (maybe because you already have facilities of your own) but are interested in being involved with our community, you can join the Eastern Agri-Tech Innovation Hub Club. We can offer you the opportunity to be an Innovation Hub Club member from £300 +VAT/year (Membership will require approval). Please note that if you would like to add any additional requirements please contact us to discuss. This may incur additional charges.
