Applications open for Australia’s first deep tech AgTech program

Petra Andren

Australia’s only “super incubator”, Cicada Innovations, in partnership with MLA Donor Company (MDC), is calling for applicants to their Australian-first deep technology AgTech program for the agriculture and food sectors.

The program, called GrowLab, is designed to help talented agricultural technologists capture a portion of the $100 billion Australian AgTech opportunity by guiding them through the process of commercialising their advanced AgTech innovations in areas such as robotics, animal health, remote sensing, food technologies and decision support tools.

The participants will already have a technology that can be applied to the agriculture or food sectors, and GrowLab will provide the tools, structure and milestones to determine how best this technology could be turned into a start-up company. It is the only AgTech program in Australia focused on deep technologies that go beyond simple mobile applications, and will comprise 8 to 10 individuals or teams with ideas capable of completely transforming agricultural practices and food production
