Funding programme for collaborative US – Irish research projects launched

By on
Research institutions are invited to apply for funding to participate in joint projects with the US and Ireland that will benefit the agri-food sector.
Research institutions are invited to apply for funding to participate in joint projects with the US and Ireland that will benefit the agri-food sector.

The Department of Agriculture Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) launched the funding programme on Friday.

The Research and Development Partnership is a tri-jurisdictional approach to collaborative funding between DAERA, DAFM and the US Department of Agriculture. The plan is to identify opportunities to co-fund research in areas of shared strategic priority.

“Addressing common issues with a collaborative approach has many benefits, including the leverage of additional research capacity and expertise to meet the needs of the local agri-food sector,” DAERA departmental science advisor, Dr Alistair Carson said.

“This funding to local scientists, technologists and advisers will play an essential part in assisting NI farmers who face the challenges of increasingly competitive agri-food and forestry sectors.”

The submission deadline to DAERA and DAFM is four weeks in advance of the stated NIFA deadline for the respective thematic area in AFRI’s 2017 Foundation Competitive Grant Programme.

Anyone looking for more information is invited to participate in a webinar hosted by DAFM.
