Map of venue


BBSRC and NERC invite you to a workshop for the UK aquaculture research and industry communities.

This event will bring grant holders from the recent Sustainable Aquaculture and Global Research Partnership Aquaculture calls together with other UK aquaculture researchers and representatives from industry to network and discuss on-going research and challenges facing the sector. There will also be an opportunity to hear about a new joint BBSRC and NERC Sustainable Aquaculture Initiative, which will invest in collaborative, pre-competitive, industrially relevant research.

Draft programme

The primary objective of this event is to build relationships between different parts of the growing aquaculture research community. We aim to encourage collaboration and networking in order to add value to recent investment and prepare for the upcoming joint BBSRC and NERC Sustainable Aquaculture Initiative.

The day will be a combination of presentations, flash presentations and networking.
