Marine data to support aquaculture in the North Atlantic

In collaboration with Copernicus Marine, EMODnet and the European Commission, EATiP organizes the expert workshop on “Marine data to support aquaculture in the North Atlantic”, on May 5-6 in Trondheim, Norway. This event, on invitation only, will explore opportunities and applications for open source marine environmental data to support and innovate the aquaculture sector in the North Atlantic region. The ultimate goal is to set up a collaborative platform with key stakeholders to develop a methodology for ecosystem based management of aquaculture based on existing data. The participants will be experienced Copernicus / EMODnet users, data providers, coastal managers and aquaculture data end users. If you would like to apply to join the workshop, please contact secretariat@eatip.eu.

All-Atlantic Ocean Research Forum (Feb 5-7, 2020)

EATiP organised, in collaboration with the AORA aquaculture working group and the AquaVitae project, a workshop in Brussels to promote cross-Atlantic collaboration. The European Commission (DG RTD), EATiP and its Mirror Platforms, together with the project delegates looked into how aquaculture clusters can act as vehicles to facilitate aquaculture cooperation, in particular between Europe, US, Canada, Brazil and South Africa. Results of the discussion were presented at the All-Atlantic Forum, gathering politicians, research managers, governmental organisations, project coordinators, and industry representatives from all corners of the Atlantic Ocean.

EATiP provided recommendations on how to jointly unveil the resources of the ocean sustainably. These will contribute to setting a new strategic direction for the All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance which can support the implementation of the UN Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development and deliver on the priorities such as the European Green Deal, the Horizon Europe Mission Healthy Oceans, Seas, Coastal and Inland Waters and other national or regional commitments taken by the different international partners.

A report of the event will be made available shortly.
