TA 6. Knowledge Management

Chair: Karl Almas – SINTEF (Norway)
Facilitator: David Murphy – AquaTT (Ireland)
Contact –  

VISION statement:

“In 2030, the European aquaculture industry will be widely regarded as an environmental, economic and socially sustainable activity. This respect will be grounded in evidence-based scientific knowledge, industrial strength and consumer confidence. Knowledge and innovation will be competitive advantages for the European aquaculture industry. European scientists will be major contributors to the
international scientific community, providing relevant input to all stages of the aquaculture value chain. The aquaculture sector will be attractive to a wide range of highly educated people, with positive growth and employment opportunities. The industry will be characterised by its ability to fast-track
progress from knowledge development and intellectual protection through to innovation, industrial application and product development. European aquaculture will adopt cutting edge knowledge management practices to support state-of-the art technological development. This will be the key factor that allows the aquaculture industry to meet the imminent market demand for fish & shellfish production,
due to limited natural resources coupled with a growing world population.”

Identified KEY GOALS:

    1. Manage knowledge efficiently and effectively within the European Aquaculture sector
    2. Ensure the availability and efficient use of aquaculture research infrastructures across all boundaries to benefit the industry
    3. Collect and collate evidence for informed communications on the benefits of the European
      aquaculture sector for Society and the Environment
    4. Foster and build the human capital of the European aquaculture sector
