The Shared Island Fund Bioeconomy Demonstration Initiatives Funding opportunity


Thursday 14th September 2023, 10:00am - 11:00am

The Irish government’s Shared Island initiative aims to harness the full potential of the Good Friday Agreement to enhance cooperation, connection and mutual understanding on the island and engage with all communities and traditions to build consensus around a shared future. The Shared Island Fund was announced in Budget 2021, with €500m in capital funding available between 2021-25, ring-fenced for investment in collaborative North/South projects.

As part of the Shared Island fund, the Government has awarded €7 million for a Bioeconomy Demonstration Initiative Scheme to invest in the 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 Bioeconomy Demonstration Initiative Scheme will support the move towards a low-carbon and circular economy. The Department for Agriculture, Food and Marine is bringing together the overall funding package which will be progressed through a competitive funding call. The Department for Agriculture, Food and Marine will work in consultation with the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs in the development of the opportunity to encourage the development of sustainable and circular projects for the agri-bioeconomy and blue bioeconomy.

The purpose of this webinar is to:

  • Engage with stakeholders who may be interested in finding out more about the bioeconomy and how they may be part of it;
  • Learn about the Shared Island funding opportunity;
  • Find out how to participate in a stakeholders survey to help identify potential bioeconomy projects;
  • Quantify the level of interest in the call, and
  • Promote upcoming in person workshops/one to one clinics on the Shared Island fund Bioeconomy Demonstration Initiative Scheme.
