Background: The US-Ireland R&D Partnership (Partnership) aims to increase the level of collaborative research and development between the partners, maximizing scientific and financial resources while focusing on mutual strategic research priorities. In 2015, USDA, Republic of Ireland Department of Agriculture, Food, and the Marine (DAFM) and the Northern Ireland Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) launched a five-year pilot program adding agriculture as a Partnership priority area. During the pilot the partners capitalized investments in research intended to help solve global agriculture-related issues, approximately $7.1 million USD was awarded by the three funders to six projects across eleven institutions. Following the successful conclusion of the pilot, USDA, DAFM and DAERA are pleased to include agriculture as a priority area under the Partnership.
