Call for abstracts now open for Aquaculture Europe 2020

The call for abstracts is now open for Aquaculture Europe 2020, which will be taking place online from 12th – 15th April 2021.

The event will stay the same as ‘normal’ Aquaculture Europe meetings, with morning plenary sessions and then breakout parallel sessions for oral and Eposter presentations. The parallel sessions will be made up of shorter slots for pre-recorded video presentations of the oral presentations and with time allocated to review Eposters and for Q&A.

This year, AquaTT's very own Georgia Bayliss Brown will chair the "Education, knowledge management, transfer and extension networks" session.

Last year, the session welcomed seven speakers and exhibited three e-posters. The presentations sparked some interesting discussions, particularly between those presenting. The session covered various issues related to public perception, educational and career development programmes, and the use of technology to support network development. This time, the event will look slightly different as the presentations will be pre-recorded and there will be plenty of opportunity for discussion in the live Q&A.

Topics could include but are not limited to educational and career development programmes including training and capacity building; citizen science; public perception; the sharing of knowledge, techniques, innovations and technology; and the design of support and/or formation of networks. If you are working within this truly important field, we would love to hear from you.

To apply, please submit an abstract by 31st January 2021. More information can be found on the event website.
