The Bioeconomy to 2030: A Researcher’s Perspective

Event Time 9:30am
Venue Online

Teagasc’s Research Directorate was closely involved in the development of the National Bioeconomy Policy Statement, which was published in 2018. It continues to support the development of the bioeconomy though research grounded in science & technology as well as social science-based disciplines.

This webinar gives a flavour of some current/recent research across different Teagasc research programmes. In addition to explaining the research, the presenters will explain how their work is expected to contribute to the bioeconomy to 2030 and discuss some of the related challenges and opportunities in delivering such impact.
