Marine Genomics 4
Users project meeting, 16-17 June 2011, Barcelona, Spain
EU-funded Support Action Marine Genomics 4 Users (MG4U) will hold their
next project meeting in Barcelona on 16-17 June, to discuss the
preliminary results coming out of the knowledge analysis of European and
national marine genomics projects. External policy and industry experts
are invited to give input on potential gaps in knowledge outputs and to
give advice on best practice knowledge transfer.
Currently, project coordinators of marine genomics related national or FP6 and FP7 projects are being invited to respond to a dedicated e-mail helping the project in its aim to maximise the exploitation of results from recent and on-going projects in marine genomics and to allow fast and efficient knowledge transfer to end-users.

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

COEXIST partner meeting, 7-9 June 2011, Lisbon, Portugal
COEXIST project, supported by the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7),
addressing the sustainable use of Europe’s coastal zones, will hold its
next project partner meeting in Lisbon on 7-9 June 2011. COEXIST will
develop a roadmap for integration of aquaculture and fisheries in the
European coastal zone. For this, several case studies will be undertaken
in several different maritime regions, demonstrating conditions and
combinations of activities of European coastal areas of particular
importance for aquaculture and coastal fisheries.
The 3rd COEXIST meeting will focus on the analysis of the project preliminary results after the first year of implementation. Also, the next steps to achieve the COEXIST project expected results will be discussed. The first day of the meeting will be an open day where several organisations and stakeholders will be invited to participate and discuss the first project results.

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