Some 12 research performing organisations have been awarded funding from The Policy and Strategic Studies Research Strand which was first launched in 2022.  A total of 19 projects have been successful, with a wide range of topics including climate adaptation, plant health regulation and pesticides, forestry, animal health and welfare, the bioeconomy, and women in farming. As a result of these projects, sixteen employment opportunities were developed.
