The half-way point of Brexit negotiations has been reached and to mark the occasion, the UCD school of Agriculture and Food Science are set to host a seminar.
The seminar is called ‘Brexit: Halfway there, implications for agriculture and food. It will feature presentations from many speakers, including Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed T.D. He will discuss Brexit and its implication on Irish agriculture.
Other speakers include Dr Michael Wallace, incoming Professor of Agriculture and Food Economics UCD, who will discuss whether UK agriculture will survive post-Brexit. Aoife Byrne, UCD Assistant Professor of Farm business and Financial Management, will moderate a discussion and Q & A session, following the previously mentioned presentations. This session will be between students, media personnel, UCD staff and senior agri-food executives.
The day will commence with lunch and a chance to network in the O’Neill Lounge, prior to discussions starting at 12:30pm. The seminar takes place March 28th, in the FitzGerald Debating Chamber, UCD student centre, Belfield, Dublin 4. The seminar will take place from 1pm sharp to 2:15pm.
It looks like this is one event we should all be keeping our eyes on!
