Co-Centre Progamme: Climate and Food Systems Research

The Co-Centre Programme, co-funded by UKRI and industry, is a new partnership between Ireland, GB & NI. It is open to proposals on research and innovation within the areas of climate, and sustainable and resilient food systems.

The overall ambition of the Co-Centre Programme is to create a dynamic research network across Ireland, Great Britain, and Northern Ireland. This will be led by a cross-jurisdictional collaboration of academic partners working together with industry and other key stakeholders to bring scale, standing and cohesion to the research and innovation ecosystem.  The Co-Centre Programme encourages high quality research and innovation whilst also delivering economic, societal, health and environmental impacts. 

The new programme will provide for an investment of €74million, funded through DAERA (up to £17M), SFI (up to €40million) and UKRI (up to £12 million), to support future joint research.
