Event description
An in-person event open to all Canterbury-based tertiary students to shape the future of food, fibre and agritech

About this Event

The Ag-tech Shake-Up is an in-person event open to all Canterbury-based tertiary students. In teams, you will work together over two days to come up with an innovative technology or identify new value-add sustainable products in the food, fibre and agritech (FFA) sectors. Your idea could be anything from a fabulous new food or fibre product, a ground-breaking underlying technology, or solutions to assist on-farm automation and decision making.

The Challenge will run over 2 days: Friday 25 September & Saturday 26 September 2020. During the 2 days, you will get coaching from B.linc Innovation and UCE staff and receive mentoring and input from industry experts. The Challenge is a perfect opportunity to meet some new people, hone your skills, build your CV, experience some new ways of working and have a real impact in Canterbury!

On the final day of Ag-tech Shake-up, your team will pitch your concept to a panel of judges. The top ideas will get a share of the $3,000 cash prize pool as well as the opportunity to enter the ChristchurchNZ Food Fibre and Agritech Supernode Challenge, to take your ideas to the next level!

Registrations close at noon on Monday 21 September.
