CIEL, the Centre for Innovation Excellence in Livestock is currently looking for tenders in the areas of research and innovation in aquaculture. There are two subtopics for this call:
Seaweeds – crossover from ‘aqua’ to ‘agri’: this topic looks at mapping supply chains, and developing an understanding of the impacts on the health of feed additives developed from seaweeds, as well as nutrient analysis to provide data for seaweed product development.
Life Cycle Assessment and Blue Carbon: this topic covers the following aspects: open Seapen/pond finfish production, recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) finfish production, Seabed cultured shellfish and molluscs, plus several others.
To apply, applicants will have to download, read and complete the various forms:
The EIT-funded project AGAPE has been launched with the purpose of promoting the transition of aquaculture to the blue economy by reskilling and upskilling the workforce using a AI-based collaborative platform.
The aquaculture industry in Europe is facing cost, supply and workforce challenges. The European Maritime and Fisheries Fund will help compensate the rapidly increasing energy cost. However, this is only a small and temporary fix. New solutions need to be found. Upskilling and reskilling solutions can help mitigate the issue.
Women represent 20 to 30 percent of the aquaculture workforce, and in some countries as much as 50 percent. Yet, training and development opportunities are scarce. Learn about two activities that are bound to change that.
Can crabs be used to produce batteries from sustainable materials? Researchers demonstrated that they can. Building a battery that contains material from crab shells, they developed a high-performance, rechargeable battery.
