Meet the Teagasc Signpost Team
The new Signpost Programme – Farmers for Climate Action, will be launched tomorrow Tuesday, 18 May. Today we meet the Signpost Programme team who will work with farmers, and the partner organisations to prompt climate action by all Irish farmers.
Dr Tom O’Dwyer was appointed as Head of the Signpost Programme in the autumn of 2020, having previously headed up the Dairy Knowledge Transfer Department in Teagasc.
Two new appointments have been made, and he is joined on the Signpost Programme team by Dr Siobhan Kavanagh and Dr Seamus Kearney. Siobhán Kavanagh is the Signpost Programme Communications and Engagement Specialist, while Seamus Kearney is the Training and Development Specialist.
