Strong collaboration with key stakeholders in the agri-food sector will be crucial to the success of the Teagasc Climate Action Strategy.
Teagasc collaborates with a diverse range of stakeholders nationally, including farmers, milk and meat processors, government departments and agencies, higher education institutes, agricultural consultants (ACA) and relevant Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) and Enterprise Ireland (EI) funded centres such as VistaMilk, Meat Technology Ireland, BiOrbic and APC Microbiome Ireland.
Internationally, Teagasc will build on the already strong collaboration in place as part of Horizon 2020/Horizon Europe funded projects with organisations such INRAE (FR), WUR (NL), Aarhus University (DK), ILVO (BE), IDELE (FR), LUKE (FI) and AFBI (NI).
All of these organisations share Teagasc’s commitment to addressing the current climate change challenge. Teagasc has a long history of collaboration with international partners and continues to increase its efforts to collaborate with similar institutions in developing countries around climate action and food security to support the work of DAFM and DFA.
