MarineTT showcase – Unlocking Marine Knowledge, 7 June 2011, Brussels, Belgium

The EU funded support action MarineTT organises a showcase in Brussels next week (Tuesday 7th June) to provide an overview of the MarineTT project and the innovative approach the project has taken to identify and analyse knowledge outputs from FP6 and FP7 funded projects in the marine domain. MarineTT – European Marine Research Knowledge Transfer and Uptake of Results – is an FP7 support action unlocking the potential of previously EC funded research activities in a new, innovative way.

MarineTT is expected to make a real contribution to improved access to European marine research results for industry, policy, science and society at large. MarineTT is coordinated by AquaTT, with EurOcean as a project partner. The Showcase will also act as a forum for key individuals at European level to provide the project with feedback and insight, raising awareness at the same time.

Students, are you getting ready for the 2011 Innovation in Aquaculture Award?
 

In 2008, AQUATT along with AMC Ltd set up the Lindsay Laird award for the most innovative poster (in English) submitted by a student. This event takes place at the annual EAS International Conference, this year to be held in Rhodes. Areas of research are deliberately set very wide, in order to maximise opportunities for participation: environmental impact in aquaculture, new candidate species, hatcheries/early life history, stock production, fish diseases, new technologies and genetics/genomics.  So far, three hard-working students have benefited (you will hear more about them nearer the event). AQUATT is now on the search for the 2011 entries for this prestigious award. So let's break the record for entries for 2011. See you in Rhodes!

The Lindsay Laird Award consists of a certificate and an award of a laptop (to the value of 500 euros) of the winner's choice. Entries submitted by students for the best student poster at the EAS annual conference in Rhodes are eligible.

The jury will be composed of an AQUATT representative, an academic representative (University of Crete) and a representative from the industrial sector (to be nominated later). The award will be presented by the EAS President.
