Optimisation of upland/lowland resources within farming systems to deliver a range of ecosystem services across multifunctional agricultural landscapes

Ref Walsh Scholarship Number 2020005

The Walsh Scholarships Programme is Teagasc’s postgraduate development programme, with some 140 students pursuing PhD programmes at any one time. This PhD will utilise the Burren agricultural landscape.  The Burren context presents a unique opportunity to investigate the potential for improved integration where a system for payments for ecosystem services exist alongside developed agricultural markets. It is expected that the land use management framework developed can be replicated in similar farmland landscapes across Ireland and internationally.   For full details please see Walsh Scholarship Advert – Teagasc-GMIT.   Closing date is 30th June 2020.
