EURASTiP Capacity Building Foresight Workshop:

Ensuring Aquaculture Education Meets the Needs of the Aquaculture Sector


Location: Le Corum MONTPELLIER, Montpellier (France)
Date: Saturday 25 August 2018

Overall aim of this workshop is to bring together aquaculture parties from both Europe and south-east Asia to discuss trends, opportunities and areas for strategic cooperation in relation to training provision that supports a sustainable global market.

Aquaculture is one of the most important and rapidly expanding food production industries in the world.  As an exciting yet constantly evolving sector, excellent education underpins each person working in aquaculture.  An important question to ask is “whether aquaculture education is fit for purpose for the 21st century ?”

Most of Europe’s imported seafood comes from south-east Asia, and both regions have a substantial interest in collaborating at an educational level too, to ensure that aquaculture education delivers the best employees for the aquaculture sector overall.  At this workshop we explore whether current aquaculture educational programmes and methods sufficiently address many of the emerging trends in the aquaculture sector, and how we can collaborate better and learn from each other to develop education and training that delivers fit for purpose employees.
