Representatives from twelve EATiP Mirror Platforms met in Berlin on January 22 and 23 to interact and to discuss common interregional challenges.
Yolanda Molares (ACUIPLUS) was appointed as Mirror Platform chairperson. It was also decided to develop a document pointing out the priorities in aquaculture research and innovation, based on the draft EATiP position paper. The work will be carried out in four different working groups, i.e. Coldwater marine, Freshwater, Mediterranean and Shellfish, algae and other species. Results will be presented at the EATiP Annual General Meeting. The engagement in collaborative projects and joint actions was also discussed.
After the meeting a visit was paid to the ECF Aquaponic Farm, a site located centrally in Berlin which combines cultivation of Tilapia with the production of basil.
