Do you want to go to Aquaculture Europe 2013 in Trondheim? Do you need some financial support? We can help!
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:
