Info Webinar: 2022 Joint Research Call between Ireland and New Zealand

May 18, 2022 @ 10:00 am 11:00 am NZST

New Joint Research Mechanism on climate and agriculture launched between Ireland and New Zealand

The Joint Research Initiative enables research calls to address the impact of high to medium-intensity grassland livestock systems on the climate and the environment. It builds on established research links between Ireland and New Zealand and strengthens existing cooperation and collaboration between funders and researchers on a bi-lateral basis.

The first research call under this initiative has been launched – “Strategies, technologies and novel production systems to reduce and account for greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture ruminant production systems”.

Submissions are open for proposals until 5pm 15 July 2022 (Irish time).

Topics for this call are:

  • Rumen Microbiology to Support the Development of Ruminant GHG Mitigation Technologies
  • Identification and development of technologies for the selection of low emitting ruminant livestock
  • Refinement of agricultural GHG emissions inventories through the development of emission factors for Nitrous Oxide and Carbon

There will be 2 webinars for applicants at these dates and times:
