Applications are open for this year's Enterprise Ireland's Innovation Arena Competition.
The annual competition returns to this year's National Ploughing Championship in Co Laois after going virtual for the past two years due to the pandemic.
The Innovation Arena Competition, run in partnership with the National Ploughing Association, invites businesses and innovators in the agritech sector to enter their pioneering agri-related products and services for consideration.
There are a number of prizes across several categories, and those who are short-listed will be invited to showcase their products and innovative agritech solutions at the 'Enterprise Ireland Innovation Arena', alongside the winners from the virtual competition in 2020 and 2021.
The closing date for applications for this year's competition is June 1st.
James Maloney is the Senior Development Adviser for Agritech Climate and Sustainability with Enterprise Ireland.
