European Innovation Partnership (EIP) Wales

What is EIP Wales?

The role of EIP Wales is to introduce innovation and new ideas to farm and forestry businesses. It provides funding of up to £40,000 for groups of farmers and foresters who want to trial innovative techniques and technologies at a practical level within their businesses.

The project must be innovative and be looking to tackle on farm problems. The results should benefit the wider agricultural and forestry sector. It should be looking to further apply the outcomes of primary research.

How long do the projects last and how can the funding be spent?

The funding can be used to hire equipment, pay contractor costs, pay specialists to monitor progress and give advice, and pay to have samples analysed.
