EATiP Communication Survey

Effective communication is vital in order to successfully engage in knowledge transfer, especially with regard to innovative technology and research outputs.

For that reason, EATiP are inviting any interested parties to take part in our annual communication survey.  Although primarily aimed at EATiP members and stakeholders, there is much merit in broadening our survey to those interested in the field of promoting technology, innovation and research in the aquaculture community.  Results of the survey will be considered by the EATiP secretariat and any conclusions and necessary actions agreed by our Board and General Assembly later in the spring.

Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey and providing your feedback to us.  Your views are important to us and will help ensure that we continue to be effective in our role as an interface in aquaculture research and innovation.

Introducing… our 1st EATiP Stagiaire

We are delighted to have a stagiaire working with the EATiP office (virtually…) for the month of February.

Alexandre Kabore is a student at the University of Liège.  Having completed his bachelor’s degree in physics – also at ULiège – he is currently finishing a Masters in Oceanography.

Alexandre Kabore

In this context, Alex will be spending his one-month internship at EATIP to learn more about organisational aspects of the aquaculture sector.

Our secretariat have identified various work streams that Alex can help with – with regard to data and mapping exercises for aquaculture linked organisations – and we will be providing him with various contacts and addresses to approach relating to this work.  So if you are approached by an Alex Kabore representing EATiP, then please accept this web post as a first introduction and thank you in advance for your welcome and assistance during his stage with our organisation.

This is the first time EATiP has hosted a student stagiaire and upon the conclusion of the exercise we will be reviewing how things worked out and what scope we might have in the future for further university collaborations with EATiP members and linked organisations.  If you have any thoughts on that topic, please get in touch with us!
