Aquaculture Europe 2013

Aquaculture Europe – the annual meeting of the European Aquaculture Society – takes place at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim in August 9 – 12, 2013. The theme – Making Sense of Science – will focus on knowledge management to support technological development and innovation. The plenary sessions will provide delegates the examples from various sectors. Abstracts for the parallel sessions will focus on demonstrating the practical implications and application of results.

Sessions and abstracts are to be focused on following questions:

  • What is driving innovation? Theory & Practice – and including closed versus open innovation, the utilization of networks, organic organizations and the balance between exploration and exploitation, and paradigm shifts for breakthrough and acceptance.
  • Mapping genomes – what impact for the sector? Status and future of mapping fish, algae, bacteria and other genomes. Modern molecular biology techniques for genetic mapping can create new breakthroughs in revealing breeding efficiency and adaptation of physiological responses. What impacts could this have for the cultivation of aquatic organisms?
  • Maximising impact of research – How can we secure optimal transfer of new scientific knowledge into use in the sector? How do we set priorities – before, during and after programs, evaluations and in consortia? How do we communicate better to different users of new knowledge?
