An exciting opportunity has arisen within the “Design Factory Birmingham” to support the delivery of a project called "ShropAgri" for companies in Shropshire to get support from Aston University. ShropAgri is concerned with the promotion and advancement of design and technology projects in the Agricultural sector. The project will utilise the expertise of Aston University in Photonics, Electronics, Mechanical and Chemical Engineering, and design to assist the business community in Shropshire.

Aston University will run a project from January 2024 to March 2025. During the project, the team will offer individual companies bespoke packages to suit their needs. For example, this could include the provision of dedicated research and development on the chemistry of a given system, or to produce a higher quality food product, whereas another may need a ‘full package’ from design of a new product for the business.
