Agriforwards CDT

‘Agriforwards’ is the world's first EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Agri-Food Robotics.

Agriforwards CDT has been established by the University of Lincoln in collaboration with the University of Cambridge and University of East Anglia.

Agriforwards CDT provides a unique blend of technical expertise, outstanding research environment and, most important, integral industry collaboration in Agri-food Robotics.

Through excellence in education, the ‘Agriforwards CDT – Cambridge’ aims to empower its students with the knowledge and abilities that will allow them to shape their future and become independently minded thinkers and innovators.

This web-site informs about the activities conducted by the Agriforwards CDT-Cambridge
