AmCham Response to the Department of the Environment, Climate & Communications Public Consultation on Research and Innovation Strategy
What gaps do you see in the Department’s current research and innovation activities? How should we address those gaps in the Department Research and Innovation Strategy?
The development of research and innovation will be crucial in meeting our climate goals. AmCham notes that the development of renewable energy will be key in meeting our 2050 targets, as discussed in its White Paper ‘Powering Ireland into the Future’1, however greater attention must be paid to the wider areas that need to be addressed. In this regard some gaps in the current strategy include a lack of funding for fundamental environmental research, research into how we can measure sustainability, and research into the circular economy.
