The Shared Island initiative aims to harness the full potential of the Good Friday Agreement to enhance cooperation, connection and mutual understanding on the Island of Ireland and to engage with all communities and traditions to build consensus around a shared future.

As part of the Shared Island Fund, €9 million has been awarded for a Bioeconomy Demonstration Initiative Scheme to invest in sustainable, innovative, and circular bioeconomy development on a shared Island basis, with the aim of transforming the agri-food sector and creating jobs in the rural and coastal economy and sustaining rural and coastal communities.

The Shared Island Fund Bioeconomy Demonstration Initiative Scheme will support the move towards a low-carbon and circular economy. The Department of Agriculture, Food and Marine (DAFM) is bringing together the overall funding package which will be progressed through a competitive funding Call. The department is working in consultation with the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) in Northern Ireland to develop the opportunity on and all-Island basis to encourage the development of sustainable and circular projects for the agri-bioeconomy and blue bioeconomy across the Island of Ireland. InterTradeIreland are supporting both departments to deliver this all island opportunity. Full details of the call can be found here.

The workshop will provide attendees with an opportunity to find out more about this exciting call, proposal expectations, opportunities to find partners and speak to local experts on a one to one basis.

By registering for this event, you agree that InterTradeIreland may share your details with DAFM (Department of Agriculture, Food, and the Marine) and DAERA (Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs) for the purposes of the event.
