Teagasc/SRUC Virtual Conference 2021
Type Event Proceeding
The role of digital in securing a green rural economy was the focus of a joint virtual conference, held by Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) and Teagasc, which took place on Tuesday, 9th February. The virtual conference was the third in a series of annual events.
Teagasc and SRUC have for many years collaborated on issues of mutual interest and concern. This process culminated in 2018 with the first of a series of annual conferences aimed at identifying solutions and helping create new opportunities for our rural economies.
In 2019, the conference addressed the major environmental, consumer and economic challenges facing our pasture-based livestock systems in Scotland and Ireland.
This webinar brought perspectives and insights on the role of digital technologies to secure a green recovery in the wake of the covid 19 pandemic. In particular to work together to apply digital solutions that could lead to vibrant and sustainable rural sectors in both Scotland and Ireland in the coming decades.
