Fáilte ó Stiúrthóir Taighde
Teagasc is the leading organisation in the fields of agriculture and food research in Ireland, undertaking innovative research in:
- Animal and Grassland Research and Innovation
- Crops, Environment and Land Use
- Rural Economy and Development
Our annual research portfolio comprises some 300 research projects, carried out by 500 scientific and technical staff in our research centres throughout Ireland.
National Research Collaboration
We collaborate extensively with our colleagues in Irish universities. Our post-graduate fellowship programme, which supports more than 100 MSc and PhD students annually in our research centres, enhances this collaboration.
International Research Collaboration
We participate extensively in EU Framework Programmes and we have developed bilateral agreements with research organisations in Europe, the USA and New Zealand.
The Irish economy in general, agricultural producers and consumers specifically, have benefited substantially from the technological development and new information emanating from research undertaken by Irish scientists.
Teagasc are delighted to be involved in Dublin City of Science 2012 and see it as a great opportunity to showcase the excellence of Teagasc and Irish research, and we are planning a number of events during the year.
This website provides just a flavour of the extensive range of research in which our staff are engaged. Feel free to contact us for further information on our work.
