INSPIRE 3-week intensive programme - Restorative Aquaculture

The aim of our proposed INSPIRE programme is to provide an overview of aquaculture production in Europe, showcase the worldwide opportunities, outline the current barriers and facilitators to production; and encourage talented recruits and aspiring entrepreneurs into the sector and to create innovative solutions to address the challenges to production. The programme also aims to facilitate stakeholder engagement and partnerships through, for example: academic lectures, industry speakers; site visits; and other networking and value-added activities.

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • Understand the aquaculture sector, including seaweed farming, finfish and shellfish farming methods and algae biotechnology
  • Identify short and long-term future consequences of decisions involving different components of the food system.
  • Translate innovations into feasible business solutions for the food sector.
  • Think beyond boundaries, and systematically explore and generate new ideas, responding to current and future challenges within the food system.
