Bioeconomy Ireland Day 2018 brings together key bioeconomy practitioners, thought leaders, industry, researchers, and policy makers to drive Ireland’s bioeconomy forward, creating indigenous wealth, enabling existing industry growth, creating new business opportunities, while enabling vibrant, sustainable communities, contributing to climate change mitigation and food security and delivering a host of other ecosystem services.
