Working with Industry
Connecting our Industry Members with multiple partners and new research capability
CIEL is a membership organisation, working with businesses to help identify and develop their livestock research needs, and then building relevant collaborations to deliver new technologies and processes for livestock food production.
We have a network of Industry Members encompassing all aspects of the livestock supply chain, from pre-farmgate, processors and retailers to the animal health sector and SME innovators.
As a CIEL member you’ll have access to tailored support to meet your R&D requirements and facilitated access to representatives across the CIEL network. We connect people for mutual benefit, helping you build productive working relationships; we remain independent, becoming a trusted source of knowledge and guidance.
Working with CIEL, we have submitted funding calls, heard about new technologies and met other interesting businesses and academics that we wouldn’t have done otherwise. I’d recommend joining CIEL to any new business looking to do R&D and scale up quickly.
