We are interested to make contact with anyone interested in the project from any background. Find our contact details on the Contact us page.

Stakeholders work closely with the research team, providing important feedback, and gaining information on the practical outcomes of the project.

Stakeholders can play various roles, they can be sector experts who can provide the research team with valuable feedback on the direction of the project, or contribute to developing technological solutions, or can host the project, for example at a farm.


Stakeholder: The Green Farmer (TGF)


The Green Farmer Co-operative Society Limited (TGF) is an innovative and exciting collaborative enterprise, and they are a stakeholder in the Duck-Feed project. They collaborate with our scientists to trial the reality of duckweed production on a dairy farm in the Clonmel area of Tipperary. Feedback from farmers growing and using duckweed on the farm at a commercial scale is invaluable to create a process that is not only viable, but also works in practice.

TGF is a collaborative community led by farmers and bioeconomy professionals developing practical and compliant solutions in the circular bioeconomy. Their mission is to pioneer farmer-led sustainable agriculture and to develop novel and compliant solutions to ensure a healthier and more planet-friendly way of farming for generations to come.
