We would like to share with you a new and exciting Summer School coming this August, which has been designed by Queen’s University Belfast in partnership with EIT Food, the University of Cambridge, the Scottish Association for Marine Science, the Institute of Animal Reproduction and Food Research in Poland and Matis Iceland.
The Sustainable Aquaculture Summer School provides participants with an overview of aquaculture production in Europe; outlines the current barriers and facilitators to production; showcases the worldwide opportunities; supports participants in creating innovate solutions which increase the productivity and profitability of the aquaculture sector; and introduces participants to key stakeholders in the aquaculture and agri-food sector. Over a period of 4 weeks, the Summer School will provide a dynamic and supportive environment for you to explore sustainable aquaculture, develop your entrepreneurial mind-set and learn how you can transform your ideas into business propositions.
Who is it for?
We are seeking Undergraduates, Masters students, PhD students, Posts-Docs, young professionals or aspiring entrepreneurs interested in aquaculture. We are interested in individuals from multidisciplinary backgrounds to work in teams to come up with innovative ideas e.g. Marine Biology, Aquaculture, Food Sciences, Engineering, Business / Marketing, Informatics and Computational Science, among others.
You will join a host of learners from across the globe in gaining trustworthy information and be able to share ideas and information in the online discussion forums. You will also have access to the course mentors from the two world class universities and the experts in aquaculture. The final day of the Summer School will involve a pitch event with prizes for the winning teams.
