Centre for Agricultural Sustainable Innovation (CASI)


Agriculture is a key industry in Angus. This project aims to promote the ability to provide a clean growth and bio-economy approach to the sector.

The Centre for Agricultural Sustainable Innovation (CASI) aims to facilitate collaboration between businesses in the agriculture industry and promote farm-based sustainable innovations.

Based on a ‘hub and spoke’ model, there would be a central hub that coordinates the activity of various spokes. The spokes’ activities are focused on the following themes:

  • Circular economy
  • Data and technology
  • Quality and provenance
  • Agri and food tourism
  • Skills
  • Innovation
  • Collaboration

To date, four spokes have been identified:

  • Neutral spirit still
  • Precision farming facilities
  • Innovation farm
  • Crop quality centre
