NCPC Welcomes DETE-ESRI Joint Economic Research Programme Seminar

Date: 18 April 2024 

The Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment (DETE) and the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) Joint Research Programme Seminar on ‘Driving Productivity in a Digital-Green Future: Insights on Twin Transition Research’ was held on Wednesday, 17th April 2024, in the Hilton Hotel, Charlemont Place, Dublin 2. This was the first in what is planned to be a series of annual Seminars. The Seminar was very well attended, including delegates from many Government Departments and agencies. 

DETE And ESRI embarked on a Joint Research Programme in 2021 titled Productivity Challenge and its interaction with Climate, Digitalisation and Human Capital. Under this programme, the ESRI undertook – working with Departmental officials – research on issues related to productivity which will assist in developing a deeper understanding of the processes which drive, or inhibit, productivity growth in Ireland. The Programme is funded by this Department and topics are selected in order to support evidence-based policy-making.

The Council has issued a Press Release in response which can be found here.
