The Vision of the European aquaculture industry is, by the year 2030, to provide annually 4.5 million tons of sustainable food products, worth € 14 billion, and supporting more than 150,000 direct jobs.
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.
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.
