Nordic network and conference on aquaculture recirculation technology (NordicRAS) (38842)

Project Details


DTU Aqua has taken the initiative to establish a Nordic Network on Recirculating Aquaculture Technology (RAS). The idea is motivated by the facts that: (i) the geographical location and species composition requires certain breeding conditions and solutions, and (ii) the Nordic region has an excellent academic and commercial background for initiating such collaboration.

The purpose of the network is to strengthen Nordic research and research collaboration in RAS and associated water treatment including e.g. application of existing techniques in new setups, resolving potential new research areas, and investigating innovative operation forms that ensure high water quality. We anticipate that the network will become a continuous activity which could result in the establishment of consortiums that perhaps could apply for national and transnational European research funding, exchange of students, development of projects and potential educational programmes, etc.

The network is coordinated by DTU Aqua, and was founded at a steering committee meeting in April 2011 with country representatives from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland.

As one of its first activities, the network organises a RAS workshop in Helsinki on October 5-6, 2011. The aim of the workshop is to bring researchers and industrial partners with an interest in RAS together, creating a unique opportunity for exchanging practical experiences and scientific knowledge on the newest developments in RAS. We anticipate that the workshop will become a recurrent event every other year in the country holding the presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers.
