- Three previous work packages (WP5 Innovation in Teaching Methods, WP6 Positioning Lifelong Learning & WP7 Multilingual Issues in LLL) are working as sub-groups within an interlocking framework. This structure was considered to be an effective way to streamline administration and to allow WP leaders to concentrate on their chosen priorities.
- The main drive of these priorities is to update, upgrade and present the work of each sub-group to a new audience. Each of the sub-groups has a clear agenda for finalizing its products which deserve a wider audience than the network itself.
- To this end, the organisation of a series of international workshops is envisaged as one of the main tasks of WP 5.

ARRAINA brings together a multidisciplinary consortium from 21 institutes (research, industry and SMEs) based across Europe guided by the ethos of maintaining European aquaculture industry productivity while addressing the issues of nutritional value, food safety and environmental impacts. The project kicked off with a partnership meeting in late February 2012 at the INRA offices in Paris. Download the full press release (Word) click here.
The 2Fish consortium is currently carrying out a needs analysis with enterprises across the different partner countries to identify priority training requirements for support services to the fisheries sector. Based on the results 5-8 innovative training modules will be developed and tested. The new modules will be integrated into the educational programme of 2Fish vocational education and training schools and will be available for download and re-use from the project website by other European fishery VET schools.
