$4 million project to protect Irish and Scottish waterways
Date:2/1/2011

act with it.

"The CIRB project will allow us to develop new approaches to controlling invasive species and restoring river catchments. By combining the latest scientific research with action on the ground, and by engaging with local communities to train people in how to identify and control invasive plants, we can prevent further environmental, economic and social damage."

Professor Christine Maggs, CIRB project leader and Head of Queen's School of Biological Sciences, said: "These species, and their environmental, social and economic impact, are a growing problem in the UK and Ireland.

"Through the CIRB project, scientists at Queen's, in partnership with the Rivers and Fisheries Trust Trusts of Scotland, Inland Fisheries Ireland and the University of Ulster, aim to control or eradicate invasive species and restore the natural biodiversity of our waterways."

SEUPB's Chief Executive, Pat Colgan, commended the project saying: "I would like to welcome the launch of this project, which addresses key objectives of the INTERREG IVA Programme concerning the sustainable development of the eligible region, as well as the EU's broader objectives in environmental protection. This project is a great example of how the overarching priorities of the Programme can successfully be applied to local and region-specific environmental challenges."

The CIRB project will run until December 2014 and is part financed by the European Union's European Regional Development Fund through the INTERREG IVA Cross-border Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.
