EATiP is a natural partner in collaborative European research, innovation or support actions, as contributor to the “Multi-actor approach”. It links the project strategy and impact plan to the challenges and research needs identified in the EATiP Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda. It also contributes to projects by involving its members and Mirror Platforms in multi-stakeholder workshops, hands-on training courses, stakeholder consultations or alike, and by identifying potential end users of project results. Finally, EATiP contributes in outreach and networking activities.

Current involvement as project partner:

OLAMUR is a new CINEA funded EU Mission project, that will establish three pilot demonstration sites where seaweed and blue mussels will be grown within windfarms or in the vicinity of a trout farm.

Current involvement as Advisory Group member or contributor:

In 2010, EATIP became involved in a range of different activities, many of which target improved governance and direction for RTDI actions in Europe.  Some of these activities are more horizontal and policy-oriented, such as participation as an observer in the Standing Committee on Agriculture Research (SCAR).

Here are the the previous projects EATIP was involved in:

An FP7 project focusing on the creation of an international framework that will facilitate the development of vision documents and strategic research agendas on the sectoral components of European aquaculture.

ASEM Aquaculture Platform, established in 2003 as an EU-Asia framework for dialogue, networking and continuing coordination for sustainable aquaculture development, targeting key topics such as ‘Disease & Health management’, ‘Biodiversity & Ecological impacts’, ‘Breeding & Domestication’, ‘Education’, ‘Food safety & Legislation’, ‘Food Security’.

AQUAMED aimed at making a real contribution to strengthening the links between the major research organisations and key stakeholders across the whole Mediterranean region by setting up a multi-stakeholder platform.
