Supporting Collaborative R&D in the Food Sector - Webinar

Event Time 11am
Venue Online
Webinar as part of Knowledge Transfer Ireland's Unlocking Knowledge Transfer series

In 2015, Teagasc and PepsiCo were awarded funding to explore novel applications in beverages based on dairy proteins. Since this initial collaboration the research relationship between Teagasc and PepsiCo has grown from strength to strength, delivering novel solutions to the dairy beverage sector, via multiple follow-on collaborations.  

The next webinar in KTI's Unlocking Knowledge Transfer series will look at how Irish-based companies in the food sector can access expertise and resources to carry out research towards the development of new and improved products, processes and services. We will look at R&D supports available in this sector, including the Enterprise Ireland Innovation Partnership Programme, which enables companies to work closely with the research base to develop solutions for technological challenges.

  • Dr Siobhan Jordan, Head of Technology Transfer and Commercialisation at Teagasc 
  • Dr Lawrence Lee, Manager, Innovation Partnership Programme at Enterprise Ireland 
  • Dr Dave McDonagh, Global R&D Director at PepsiCo
