“I believe this course will bring new ideas and ways of thinking into the European aquaculture sector.”
Dr Tim Atack, Managing Director, FAI Aquaculture Ltd
Each university of the EMJMD ACES-STAR will facilitate links between students, local industry and regulators through invited lectures, fieldtrips, workshops and networking events, where the exchange of information, knowledge and contacts can take place. Dedicated industry placements have been built into Semester 2, so that knowledge is applied and developed in an industry-based setting.
Dawn Shand, Scottish Institute for Enterprise
“The students’ considerable knowledge of aquaculture coupled with their various international perspectives on Scotland’s most pressing challenges brought a new dimension to the innovation workshop. In a matter of hours the students were not only coming up with novel ideas but really appreciating what drivers are required to make a good idea a reality. Both business and research opportunities were formulated providing a sound platform to do further research and prototyping.”
