Applications are now being accepted for the second training course organised by the Horizon 2020-funded AQUAEXCEL2020 project (AQUAculture infrastructures for EXCELlence in European fish research towards 2020). The Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) course will be hosted by l’Institut français de recherche pour l'exploitation de la mer (Ifremer), in Sète, France from 24 - 28 October 2016.
AQUAEXCEL2020 aims to bring together, integrate, and open up highly diverse key national and regional aquaculture Research Infrastructures in Europe to all European researchers, from both academia and industry, ensuring their optimal use and joint development. AQUAEXCEL2020 will organise nine pioneering technical training courses focusing on different aspects of aquaculture experimentation. These courses present a valuable opportunity for researchers and technicians in this field to further their experience. The objectives of this course are to review the basics of RAS and examine the different systems, designs, operations and applications. A half day will be dedicated to a RAS industry mini seminar for which industry stakeholders are invited to join.
