AQUIMER – launching of the French EATiP Mirror Platform

Since 2005 the AQUIMER cluster brings together large and small businesses, research laboratories and training institutions in the field of seafood resources to support innovation in France. As an EATiP Mirror Platform, AQUIMER is bringing its research priorities, development needs and ideas for innovation to a European level.
The workshop on June 26 in Paris gathered an active group of aquaculture stakeholders to discuss the EATiP position paper and its recommendations towards Horizon Europe.

The video sums up the aim of the event and the ideas to be further elaborated: https://aquimer.zetark.fr/index.php/s/PCDr9zOtK4OlNpE.

Follow us on the pathway towards a new research and innovation programme for aquaculture in Europe!

 

 

EATiP AGM 2019 – sum up

EATIP ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2019

Positioning Aquaculture Innovation and Research for Industry Development

EATiP members and collaborators gathered in Brussels on June 17 and 18 to discuss the positioning of aquaculture innovation and research for the development of the sector.  After the President, Gustavo Larrazábal, opened the event, an update of platform actions and achievements was given by Alexandra Neyts.  The European Commission (DG RTD and DG MARE), the European Committee of the Regions, and the expert group on Blue Skills presented the upcoming strategies, including Horizon Europe, the Blue Economy and the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund and measures towards an integrated aquaculture policy and innovation.  Priorities developed by co-technology platforms FABRE and Waterborne and by the SCAR-FISH working group were outlined.  Through consultative group discussions, results from the EATiP Mirror Platform exercise on R&I recommendations were debated and refined.  Day two of the General Meeting started with an elaboration of the Copernicus aquaculture joint event (24-25 September in Athens), followed by presentations of project activities, incl. EURASTIPAQUAEXCEL2020AORAPARAFISHCONTROL and AQUA-LIT.  After a discussion on public awareness, previously identified as one of the major challenges of aquaculture in Europe, the floor was opened to all members to provide suggestions for collaborative actions needed to stimulate industry-relevant aquaculture research and innovation in the years to come.

All presentations have been made available to the EATiP members through our joint communication platform.
