TResearch: Communicating Science

Scientific research will be one of the key drivers of the knowledge-based economy in Ireland in the future. The need for effective communication of research and the promotion of science is more important then ever, if young people are to be attracted to study science and to pursue a career in research. TResearch aims to disseminate to a wider audience some of the important scientific work being undertaken in Teagasc and in other collaborating research institutions.

It is now more essential than ever that Irish scientists engage in a genuine dialogue with the public so that the latter can better understand, support, and indeed challenge, the science that is being undertaken while, at the same time, helping scientists understand public interests and concerns.

As the national body responsible for agri-food research in Ireland, Teagasc has a statutory responsibility to disseminate its research findings to key stakeholders. TResearch is a popular science publication aimed at meeting this need. While the primary aim is to communicate Teagasc research, the magazine also aims to improve the public awareness and understanding of agri-food research generally.
