EATiP AGM 2017

The Annual General Meeting of the EATiP took place successfully  in the Martin's Brussels EU Hotel on the 7th and 8th of June 2017.

The event started with a well attended EATiP Mirror Platform meeting (MiP) where a review on the annual achievements was made and recommendations were given regarding the involvement of the MiP in EATiP projects and actions. Terms of Reference for Mirror Platforms were agreed and new activities for 2017-2018 were defined for debate. At least 9 Mirror Platforms were identified for involvement in follow-up actions.

In the afternoon, the Chairman of the EATiP, Mr Gustavo Larrazábal, opened the 9th Annual General Meeting of the platform, welcoming the participants to the meeting and outlining the expectations for the work of EATiP as a European Technology Platform.

To follow, Dr Synnove Helland (NOFIMA) presented the results of the EATiP SRIA Survey, achieved in 2016, and Mr Courtney Hough (EATiP General Secretary) introduced the review and prioritisation documents, explaining the exercise of identification of Research Needs and Key messages to communicate in the EATiP SRIA 'revision'. This involved all of the participants in a topic identification and ranking exercise. The results of these initiatives will be compiled in the EATiP SRIA review that will be presented in Aquaculture Europe 2017.

The second part of the session was dedicated to Knowledge Management, where Mrs Catherine Pons (EATiP) presented two ERASMUS+ project : e-fishnet and BlueEdu, Mr David Murphy (AquaTT) explained the objectives of the Columbus project, and Mrs Alexandra Neyts reported on AQUAEXCEL2020 project's achievements and the role of EATiP - Industry Research and Advisory Panel (IRAP).

The last session of Day 1 was dedicated to an open discussion about the EATiP-EAS Day to be held at Aquaculture Europe 2017 on Oct. 17-20, 2017
