To promote knowledge transfer partnerships between British researchers and businesses based in Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya or South Africa, Innovate UK has up to £2 million from the Global Challenges Research Fund. The last date of competition is 28 October 2020.

• Addressing challenges in downstream food processing, distribution, or storage and adding value

• Integration of smallholders into global supply chains

• Enhancing the value of production to smallholders

• Pests, weeds, and diseases control

• Meeting quality standards and improving productivity

• New food technologies

• Any kind of innovation that supports food systems to deliver nutritious, healthy and safe food

• Reducing food loss ‘post-farm gate’ and throughout the value chain

• Addressing food safety issues
