Host Introduction

Teagasc – the Agriculture and Food Development Authority – is the national body providing integrated research, advisory and training services to the agriculture and food industry and rural communities. The Teagasc mission is to support science-based innovation in the agri-food sector and wider bio-economy that will underpin profitability, competitiveness and sustainability. This is achieved through the close coupling of research and knowledge transfer in four programme areas:

  • Animal and Grassland Research and Innovation
  • Crops, Environment and Land Use
  • Food
  • Rural Economy and Development

Each of these programmes is composed of research, development and knowledge-transfer/industry-development departments. Research is conducted at seven dedicated locations, while knowledge transfer professionals are located throughout the country. The Teagasc annual research portfolio comprises some 300 research projects, carried out by 500 scientific and technical staff in our research centres throughout Ireland. In order to maximise the impact of our research, Teagasc actively collaborates with research organisations across the world. These collaborations stretch from individual projects and publications right up to formal alliances and partnerships.
