Teagasc 2030 Foresight Report - Volume 1

A number of studies have already been done on the future of Irish agriculture, sketching out the direction that the industry will go in the immediate future. Teagasc 2030, this Foresight report, is not a repeat of those exercises. Instead, it looks at how the economy will evolve into a knowledge economy; the role that the agriculture and food sectors will play in the new knowledge-based bioeconomy (KBBE) and how Teagasc can support and encourage such a development. This is an important report for Teagasc, because it looks at the skills and structures needed for a science-based organisation like Teagasc to support the information-driven economy of the future.
