Agriland and Herdwatch short-listed for ‘best innovation’ award
Agriland has been short-listed for the Best Innovation for Agri/Food Sector award at the Dot IE Net Visionary Awards 2015.
Herdwatch, the app and software package for dairy and beef cattle farmers, has also been short-listed for the same award.
This award will go to the best technology innovation for the agri-food sector and the organisers say the winning entry will be an exciting, internationally scalable solution to a sector challenge and the benefits of this technological innovation will be measurable to the end-user.
Turn2me, Agriland’s charity partner, has also been short-listed for an award. Along with three other nominees, it is nominated for the Best Use of Technology for Social Good award.
Turn2me is an online mental health support platform offering peer-to-peer and professional services to people in distress.
Oisin and Diarmuid Scollard, who lost their brother to suicide in 2003, founded the charity in 2009.
They had a vision to create a web space for people to share, discuss and offload personal problems, find support and get useful information.
The service is open to people over 18, it is a non-religious and non-political charity.
Turn2me is in a public vote category, so members of the public can vote for them on the Dot IE website here.
The Dot IE Net Visionary Awards will be held on Friday October 9, 2015 at the RDS.
