A €30 million Precision Agriculture Centre of Excellence (PACE) for Kilkenny has been unveiled. TSSG have revealed plans this morning for the hub which will roll out at its existing base in St Kieran’s College immediately. The centre will provide direct access to Irelands agri-tech companies to the best in technology, research and funding.
EU Commissioner Phil Hogan made the announcement in Kilkenny earlier and says the centre is a big development for not just Ireland but Europe: “It’s not just an all-Ireland win for Kilkenny, it’s a European win. It’s going to mean a significant focus on the type of Centre of Excellence for research and innovation that we’re promoting all over Europe.
