Plants, Crops & the Bioeconomy

 

 

Global trends in land use will place heavy demands on agri-food production systems, food shelf life and food security.  Traditional single discipline approaches cannot address these challenges effectively. 

At Maynooth University, we have established an innovative collaboration among leading plant scientists, mathematical modellers, mobile communications engineers, information theorists and economists.  These researchers are working together with government agencies, NGOs and enterprise to address the emerging problems for the bioeconomy.  Together these groups are finding the solutions for a sustainable, productive, secure and profitable system of primary production and distribution.

Maynooth University is an ideal Host Institution for a Marie Skłodowska Curie Individual Fellowship and this cluster is interested in finding potential applicants. Find a mentor below or contact PlantCrop@nuim.ie for more information.
