Partnering opportunity

British start-up is seeking technology and research partners who can help analyse animal movement and behaviour.

Summary

UK company developing an electronic tag for farmers to track and monitor their livestock to minimise losses is looking for a partner with IT skills working with sensors to co-develop the product, advance the mathematical models, data analysis and conduct research in the development of the integrated model and bring together multiple disciplines. The company is seeking either a research or technical co-operation agreement with organisations that have appropriate experience and skills.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

Knowledge of mathematical models and data analysis to understand animal movement, behaviour, welfare and ultimately health and conduct research in the development of the integrated model and bring together multiple disciplines.

Partner sought

The UK company is seeking a university or R&D Institution for technical or research cooperation to advance the mathematical models and data analysis to understand animal movement, behaviour, welfare and ultimately health. The role of the partner will be to develop models to understand animal movement, behaviour, welfare and ultimately health to reduce losses. The partner would conduct research and be involved in the development of the integrated model and bring together multiple disciplines.

Description

The UK company is developing an electronic tag using the latest technology to allow farmers to track and monitor their livestock across wide-ranging farming conditions and reduce preventable losses. The system is unique and offers an innovative technology to track the location of animals and monitor their wellbeing in near real-time and receive notifications when animals move beyond set boundaries or exhibit irregular movement or behaviour. The technology can be rolled out internationally. The product is near complete and they are looking for a research partner to advance the mathematical models and data analysis to understand animal movement, behaviour, welfare and ultimately health. This is the most important next step, and would ideally involve applied research/academia with experience in the IT sector working with sensors to co-develop the product. The target species will be cattle (beef and dairy), sheep, goats and wildlife with a potential to also include research in the application of the technologies and AI/ML in Africa or other countries. The UK company is also developing livestock production models. With the application, they intend to develop an integrated system to improve the output and yield for the farmer. This means that they will build underlying capabilities in nutrition, grazing, breeding, genetics, management and farming economics that can be relevant to different livestock production systems (such as extensive farming in low yield areas or intensive farming in high yields areas).

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
