Our Rural Future: Higher Education and Research Network

Our Rural Future: Higher Education and Research Network is part of the new Rural Development Policy 2021-2025 implementation strategy and is chaired by the Government’s Department of Rural and Community Development.

The aim of the group of HEI representatives is to support the implementation of the policy and consult with colleagues involved in rural related research, teaching and learning, and other activities.



As part of the Rural Network, MTU are delighted to present four research projects at the 13th OECD Rural Development Conference in Cavan on 29th September 2022. Further details and registration available here.
