Nuffield Ireland is set to host a week-long virtual ‘lunch and learn’ series hosted by the returning 2019 Nuffield Scholars.

Commencing on Monday 23 November, the lunchtime series will be free to attend and will feature a 10-minute presentation at 1.30pm each day, outlining the key findings of each scholar's report.

Chair of Nuffield Ireland Karen Brosnan said: “We were disappointed to have to cancel this year's Nuffield Conference, but we are delighted to be able to offer our returning 2019 scholars a platform to share their learnings with the industry.”

Approximately 70 Nuffield scholarships are awarded each year. The scholars develop their understanding of issues facing agriculture, business, consumers and policy, as well as building their own leadership capacity and personal growth.

The returning scholars and their topics include:

  • Ailish Moriarty: ‘Assess the role of milk screening for disease with the development of an effective herd health system.’
  • Alison Holmes: ‘Are we fit to farm? Investigating Irish Farmer Health Status & Sustainability.’
  • Ciara O’Halloran: ‘Food Tourism: It’s potential used as an educational tool to shorten the gap between the consumer and producer.’
  • Karina Pierce: ‘Future-proofing the Irish agri food sector through robust research.’
  • Pat O’Meara: ‘How can Irish farmers be encouraged to meet GHG emissions targets.’
