Stakeholder interaction

Stakeholder interaction

The involvement of aquaculture stakeholders ensures that AquaVitae work focuses on the real problems and opportunities that aquaculture producers are facing. Individuals and organisations contribute to the development of research activities in the project and, therefore, gain access to the project outputs.

The AquaVitae stakeholder network involves several profiles:

  • Industry representatives
  • Policy-makers
  • NGOs and certification bodies
  • Other aquaculture enthusiasts

Demand-driven innovation

AquaVitae counts on 11 case studies which involve a research partner working hand in hand with a company. This demand-driven innovation is replicated for each one the following value chains:

  • Macroalgae
  • Integrated Multi-trophic Aquaculture (IMTA)
  • Echinoderms
  • Shellfish
  • Finfish

AquaVitae network of stakeholders counts on more than 100 participants in four continents (Europe, Africa, North and South America). This network will remain open throughout the project’s life (2019-2023).

Together with other research projects working in the Atlantic basin, AquaVitae collaborates with the All Atlantic Ocean Research Community in a coordinated effort to address knowledge gaps in the Atlantic, build networks of collaboration and avoid stakeholder fatigue.
