A new and innovative professional knowledge programme, Teagasc ConnectEd has been launched. It will extend Teagasc’s knowledge transfer and research programmes to rural professionals and businesses in Ireland. The Teagasc ConnectEd Programme has been developed to provide high quality knowledge programmes for professionals and businesses that provide essential services and support to farmers and the Irish agri-food sector.

Rob Peters, Head of Research and Innovation, DG Agriculture and Rural Development, says: “The ConnectEd programme fits well with the underlying philosophy of the European Innovation Partnership for agriculture to enhance interaction between science and practice and to facilitate communication and networking among stakeholders.”

Director of Teagasc, Professor Gerry Boyle remarks: “The Teagasc ConnectEd programme was born from the need to enhance knowledge resources to services and professionals that support the agri-food sector. The dissemination, and importantly the application, of knowledge at all levels within the agri-food sector will be crucial if we are to achieve the targets set out in the FoodWise 2025 strategy.”

Mark Gibson, Teagasc ConnectEd Programme Manager, adds: “The programme seeks to leverage the extensive knowledge base that Teagasc maintains and has been designed specifically to meet the needs of professionals and businesses working with the agri-food sector. Businesses can now join the ConnectEd Programme and benefit from Ireland’s largest agri-food knowledge base. I look forward to working closely with industry stakeholders and agri-related businesses across the country in developing knowledge transfer programmes to meet their specific needs.”
