Research Impact Highlights

The annual expenditure on research in Teagasc is approximately €65 million, which comes from a variety of sources. These include the core grant-in-aid funding allocated by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM), and competitive funding awarded nationally – principally, the Food Institutional Research Measure (FIRM), the Research Stimulus Fund and Competitive Forestry Research for Development (CoFoRD) programmes of the DAFM. Other important national sources are Science Foundation Ireland, Enterprise Ireland, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Irish Research Council, and in recent years our researchers have been very active in winning funding from international programmes such as EU Horizon 2020. Farmer levy contributions, industry-funded research, and earnings from services offered and farming activities also provide funding.
