Research & Innovation Series: Agriculture

Research & Innovation Series: Agriculture
Location: Auditorium, Tourism & Leisure Building

The new Research & Innovation Series of events will deliver expert presentations from various researchers across Waterford Institute of Technology with a special focus on Agriculture

All presentations are researcher-led, from their own experience and knowledge development having worked in the area for some time. Individual presentations are intended to be bitesize immersions into a specific topic of interest and will enable the audience to gain a broad exposure to many different viewpoints in the context of a short event.

Time will be allowed for Q&A also, providing opportunities for knowledge sharing and forging new connections with researchers from traditionally distinct themes who may previously not have collaborated with each other. Event will be followed by networking and refreshments.
