DARD Evidence and Innovation Stakeholder Forum
30 November 2010
The first Annual Evidence & Innovation Stakeholder Forum was held recently at Loughry campus, Cookstown.
A key principle of the DARD Evidence and Innovation Strategy 2009 - 13 is that stakeholders play an important and on-going role in identifying DARD evidence and innovation (E&I) needs and priorities.
The one-day Forum updated stakeholders on new arrangements for commissioning and managing DARD E&I activities and provided an opportunity to seek views on the initial gaps and priorities identified by the new Programme Management Boards (PMBs).
The agenda included both plenary discussions and breakout sessions for each of the Programme Management Boards.
All information from the event can be accessed on the Department of Agriculture & Rural Development website.
