About the event

As Ireland moves towards a low-carbon economy, the Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine will deliver the Bioeconomy Demonstration Initiative Scheme as part of the EU Just Transition Fund. Through this scheme, we’ll develop bioeconomy piloting and demonstration projects across the Midlands – scaling up biobased innovation and solutions, developing new green jobs, businesses and communities.

The fund will support the transition of the Just Transition Fund Territory to a sustainable and circular biobased region through funding of sustainable bioeconomy projects that are designed to have significant climate positive and regenerative impacts on local communities including our peatlands. The fund will be used to create a biobased local society and economy.

The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine intends to launch the Bioeconomy Demonstration Initiative Scheme in July 2023. Further information on details of the scheme and how to apply will be outlined at the event.

The designated territory under the Plan and Programme includes the entire counties of Laois, Longford, Offaly, Roscommon, Westmeath, and municipal districts of Ballinasloe (Co. Galway), Athy and Clane-Maynooth (Co. Kildare), and Carrick-on-Suir and Thurles (Co. Tipperary).

Please share this event and information on this scheme with your colleagues.
