ACE is a collaboration between Dairymaster, McHale Engineering, Abbey Machinery, Kerry County Council and IT Tralee to develop an AgriTech Centre of Excellence (ACE) that will be based in IT Tralee. ACE will support an exponential change in the AgriTech industry. The centre will identify, research, share and implement best practice in innovation, processes and systems, people skills, company capability and internationalisation to deliver sustainable market growth.
The project is a game changer in the AgriTech sector and offers a new and exciting approach to sectoral learning and development, through e-learning and virtual reality. ACE is the first of its kind in Ireland & indeed Europe and is therefore, in its very nature, innovative. ACE will enhance the capabilities of Ireland’s AgriTech businesses/companies and expand their reach and global ambition, thereby positioning Ireland at the forefront of the international AgriTech industry.
