InformBio 1st year meeting at MTU Kerry!
Partners Teagasc, University of Galway, CSO and CircBio group from MTU met the past 3rd of April 2023, the InformBio team met at MTU Kerry North Campus in Tralee to celebrate the first year of the project.
InformBio project is a DAFM funded project aiming at supporting the development of a bioeconomy observatory for a sustainable and circular Irish bioeconomy.
During the first year of the project, the team has made great advancements in the first phases of the project. Specifically, CircBio group has been working on mapping Irish biological raw material to quantify its regional distribution taking into account accessibility constraints such as temporal availability, existing uses, economic and environmental constraints.
Moreover, a new member joined the team mid-year, George Bishop, under University of Galway. This partner has been working closely with the CircBio team and has started developing a synergy tool that interacts with the Irish biological raw material mapping. This tool will highlight environmental hotspot risks with regards to the use of biomasses. Keep posted for more details in the future!
