Every year the EAS-SG organizes a workshop during the conference that is dedicated to aquaculture students. We invite presenters to talk about their experience or other topics relevant to students, such as scholarships, writing papers, preparing presentations, etc. This year, the winner of the travel grant number 1 (500€) will also give an oral presentation during the EAS-SG workshop (details to prepare the presentation will be provided later). This topic for this presentation is: Aquaculture in my country –opportunities and future perspectives.
This is only a suggestive topic. You may submit an abstract with a different topic. However, please note that the oral presentation should be broad enough to fit the interest of the target audience: aquaculture students.
You can apply, if the following requirements apply to you:

As part of the AQUA-TNET project, board members of the EAS-SG (Tsjerk Terpstra, Rob van de Ven and Ana Cassamo) recently participated in the annual AQUA-TNET meeting with the theme “Architecture & Knowledge: Inspiration & Imagination”. The meeting took place from the 12th until the 14th of March in Istanbul (Turkey) at Istanbul University, arranged with the kind assistance of Prof. Meric Albay from the Faculty of Fisheries, Department of Freshwater Biology.
The meeting was organized to bring together representatives of European networks in science, technology and industry, dealing with educational matters in the aquaculture sector.
During the meeting, 6 broad topics were discussed:
WP1 – European Master Cooperation
WP2 – European PhD Collaboration
WP3 – Aqua-tnet on the move (Mobility)
WP4 – Generic Skills for future success
WP5 – Innovative Lifelong Learning
WP6 – Stakeholder coorperation
Each workgroup shared their work and engaged with the other workpackages. Participation in Aquat-net Meeting, was very interesting because it allowed the student group to meet again and to participate constructively in the improvement of each workpackage activities. The Student Group members attended various workpackages, collected information about ongoing projects and had the opportunity to contribute to each workpackage by give their opinion about ongoing activities.
The European Aquaculture Society Student Group (EAS-SG) is an integral part of the EAS and represents all its young and student members. Furthermore, we are a recognized platform for networking and exchange with the worldwide aquaculture community.
