European Technology Platforms (ETPs) are industry-led stakeholder fora recognised by the European Commission as key actors in driving innovation, knowledge transfer and European competitiveness.

Identifying Synergies

EATIP has pro-active contacts with other European Technology Platforms, notably with those developing the Bioeconomy, so as to identify and promote synergies that can stimulate innovation within European aquaculture.
