The European Asian aquaculture Technology and innovation Platform (EURASTiP) is a three year research, development and innovation project, funded through the EU Horizon 2020 programme, and developed in response to EU call “reinforcing international cooperation on sustainable aquaculture production with countries from South East Asia”(see – H2020 SFS-24-2016). EURASTiP will provide a structured basis for multi-stakeholder dialogue in the aquaculture community, within South East Asia and between South East Asia and the EU. In order to achieve this, EURASTiP will build on the experience of the European Aquaculture Technology and innovation Platform (EATiP),the ASEM aquaculture platform and the individual EURASTiP consortium partners.
There are clear mutual benefits in developing cooperation between the Asian and European aquaculture sectors, ranging from the development of common solutions for shared technical and husbandry problems to the harmonisation of policy, regulations and production standards, all set in the context of rapidly expanding market demand.
Considering the projected growth in the aquaculture sector, there is general consensus that it is necessary to establish sustainable aquaculture practices to improve resource efficiency, reduce environmental impact, address market and consumer concerns and improve product marketing and aquaculture production reputation, specifically within the key South East Asian production areas.
The EU experience proves that achievement of these multiple objectives is best facilitated through a multi-disciplinary and multi-stakeholder approach. There is consensus across the sector that, as a high priority, this working methodology should be replicated in South East Asia.
The European Union has many successful examples, notably with the European Technology Platforms, where professionals, researchers, administrators and NGOs work together, providing a bottom-up approach to problem identification, prioritisation and solving. Such structures do not currently exist in South East Asia. A prerequisite for achieving successful cooperation between Europe and South East Asia is therefore to provide the necessary structural support to allow for dialogue between the industry and relevant stakeholders at both the national and international levels.
