AQUAMED will make a real contribution to strengthening the links between main research institutes and between key stakeholders in the whole Mediterranean region. It will promote innovative Mediterranean research and focus on the most relevant issues needed to sustain aquaculture in the region. It will strengthen the EU-Mediterranean partnership in developing common projects and plan for the challenges Mediterranean aquaculture will face in the future.

If you would like to arrange an interview with the AQUAMED project team, please contact Marieke Reuver, Programme Officer, to arrange a suitable time, email@example.com. MarineTT is an innovative and timely EC 7th Framework Programme support action project aiming to transfer and exploit outputs of recent marine related EU funded projects.
The MarineTT partnership intends to survey all marine related FP6 and 7 projects with a view to focusing on “KNOWLEDGE OUTPUTS” with potential for impact if transferred. Those with high potential impact will then be transferred to target audiences by technology transfer experts using appropriate tools and mediums in order to maximise the impact of Europe’s RTD efforts in the marine area.
In order to be able to transfer high potential knowledge we must first better understand the knowledge outputs from each project and MarineTT will in the near future approach all the project coordinators of marine related FP6 and 7 projects to help. To read the full article in a leaflet please click here. The request to all marine related FP6 and 7 project coordinators will be send out shortly.
More information on the MarineTT project and the survey can be found at the website: www.marinett.eu

Vocational Aqualabs - Calling all stakeholders – the most important generic skills identified by aquaculture researchers Vocational Aqualabs is a two year project funded by the EU Lifelong Learning Programme and is concerned with generic skills needed in aquaculture research. This month the consortium had a successful project meeting in Athens, Greece.
We recently carried out a needs analysis of researchers and the results are just in. To view the results in a leaflet please click here. If you are a stakeholder (non-researcher) we would also like your opinion on priorities. Therefore we would ask you to give your views by completing our short online survey. It only takes 5 minutes and your input will be used to see if there is any divergence between the views of researchers versus other stakeholders. The survey results will directly influence what new training material and courses will be developed and carried out in the project to upskill researchers to help them better respond to end-users needs.
Please go to this link to access the stakeholder survey: http://bit.ly/apsemk To view the project website please visit http://www.aqualabs.eu/
