What’s happening in the Hub?
Hope ye are all keeping well and enjoying the mix of sunshine and rainy days.
We were delighted to have Heather Humphries, Minister for Justice, Social Protection, Community and Rural Development and the Islands and Norma Foley, Minister for Education visiting Dingle Hub last week as part of Kerry roadshow, visiting projects under #ourruralfuture. We’re really happy to be recently awarded Connected Hubs Funding under Dept of Rural and Community Development Rural Development Strategy, which will enable us to improve our facilities here at the Dingle Hub and to continue to support the creation of viable and sustainable jobs on the Dingle Peninsula.
Sustainable Innovation Project on the Dingle Peninsula
We got a great response to our callout for farmers to participate in the Sustainable Innovation Project to test on-farm sensor technology. As part of an EU Horizon 2020 funded project, Dingle Hub together with Teagasc, Kerry Agribusiness, Net Feasa and the IFA are working together on this initiative to address and achieve early progress in hitting environmental/climate change targets; at the same time creating more profitable and sustainable farming systems through the introduction and use of sensor technology. We will be testing on-farm sensor technology, which will capture real-time data on the farms, with the aim of improving environmental metrics and precision management and also in reducing labour demand. Over the next few weeks we will liaise with all applicants to determine suitability.
Successful farms will be notified by the 31st of August 2021
We’re really happy to have four new offices and we have one of these offices still available to rent; the office has a stunning view overlooking Dingle Marina and has access to eir 1Gb high-speed fibre broadband, a canteen, connection to the fabulous group of people already with offices and desks here and lots more besides. With our goal of supporting the creation of viable, sustainable, year-round jobs on the Dingle Peninsula, we’ll prioritise self-employed or companies who can offer jobs in the area. Access will be based on current government guidelines. We also have a boardroom and podcast room space to rent if you have calls or events you need private space for. Give us a shout if you’re interested in any case firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 066-915040.
Have you recently started working from here? Are you considering a part-time or permanent move to the Dingle Peninsula? Are you self-employed, remote working or a start-up business? Perhaps you are in a position within your business to bring remote working opportunities with you and build a team from here? We want to hear from you!! Please connect with us at email@example.com and help us build a vibrant, diverse and dynamic community and network. It’s not necessary to need a physical desk or office space in the hub to be part of this wider community. We’d also love you to connect with us on social media platforms – Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook.
