The Adoption of Agriculture in Ireland: Establishing a National Research Agenda

Principal Investigator:
Associate Professor Graeme Warren

In 2007-2008 I was awarded a UCD President’s Research Fellowship in order to run a project examining research priorities in our understanding of the Adoption of Agriculture in Ireland. The project involved conducting interviews with over 50 leading researchers in all cognate disciplines (Archaeology, Environment, Genetics etc) as possible in Ireland and overseas and including all sectors of the profession. Results of the project were presented at international conferences including WAC-2008 and have been published in international peer-reviewed journals:
