BACK to topThe traditional providers of adult education and learning in Europe are stepping back - the contemporary European scene is overwhelmed by a new type of providers, evading the scientific examination and making us think about providers in a completely new way, using new criteria and descriptors. They include, for example, networks, projects and the Internet. To read the full article on line please click here
A changing landscape of Adult Education in Europe
Call for proposals for reform of higher education through international university cooperation (Tempus Programme)The fourth phase of the Tempus Programme covers the period from 2007 to 2013. Tempus seeks to contribute towards facilitating cooperation in the field of higher education among Member States of the European Union and partner countries.

BACK to top Optimisation of stocking density and feed formulation in semi-intensive production systems: how it can minimise the environmental impacts of earth pond aquaculture”. The project was carried out within the scope of the SEACASE project. The award, set up by AquaTT in memory of an outstanding individual whose achievements are an inspiration to us all, was presented by Dr Selina Stead, President of the European Aquaculture Society from 2008 - 2010, at the EAS International Conference in Porto, Portugal on October 8th. The award entitles the winner to select a laptop (to the value of 500 Euros) of her choice, as well as choosing an appropriate publication to the value of 200 euro from publisher Springer.
In 2008, AquaTT set up the Lindsay Laird Student Award for innovation in aquaculture to be awarded for the most innovative poster (in English) submitted by a student concerning research in several areas, especially environmental impact in aquaculture, new candidate species, hatcheries/early life history, stock production, fish diseases, new technologies and genetics/genomics.
Lindsay Laird was a remarkable woman, moving easily between the rival spheres of teaching, research and industry, and excelling in all three. A high achiever, relishing being the first with the latest, she nevertheless hugely enjoyed her contacts with people at all levels in all three areas. She was generous with her ideas, triggering numerous research projects as colleagues approached her always open office door. She virtually ran an unofficial one-woman employment agency handling enquiries from fish farms looking for personnel or advising students or ex-students.
In the words of Professor Priede, Lindsay's husband: "Lindsay Laird will not be forgotten by the many whose lives she touched".
