March 2011

On 1 March, the EU funded project AQUAEXCEL research infrastructure project started. AQUAEXCEL aims to integrate key aquaculture research infrastructures across Europe, in order to promote their coordinated use and development. One of its activities is the facilitation of access to state-of-the-art aquaculture research infrastructures by research teams who would otherwise not normally have access to these facilities. Calls for access proposals will be widely published on www.aquaexcel.eu.

May 2011

More than 40 representatives from (predominantly Mid-) Norwegian aquaculture research institutes, and producing and supplying industries joined the excursion to Faroe Islands from 22 to 24 May. Visits to salmon smolt and ongrowing farms provided a thorough insight in on-land recirculation and exposed cage systems respectively. The excursion founded a basis for collaboration possibilities between Faroe aquaculture stakeholders and NTNU. A delegation will visit Trondheim during the AquaNOR fair (16-19 August).

Join the MaRIT-consortium,  a new dedicated multidisciplinary research and development network. Participation will help you (1) to expand your research activities and collaboration network; (2) improve your ability to impact grant proposals.  More information (pdf).

A main agenda is to make the infrastructure of individual partner's easily accessible for consortium partners, forming an integrated infrastructure for research and higher education in the Trondheimsfjord region. All core partners may include components of their research in the integrated facility.

The NTNU board has approved the establishment of a new marine strategic research area. It will start from January 2014. Its vision is "Knowledge for a sustainable use of the ocean space", with focus on cross disciplinarity , international collaboration, interaction with industry and authorities. Six thematic focus areas have been selected:

  • Green shipping
  • Into the deep sea
  • Oil and gas from the North
  • Sustainable seafood
  • Sea-based renewable
  • Marine environment and society

- MoU between Jeollanam-do province (Korea) and NTNU Marine

On 7 August, a collaboration agreement was signed by the governor of the Jeollanam-do province and the Dean of the NTNU Faculty of Engineering Science and Technology. The province is the most important site for the production of seaweeds and other aquaculture products and is therefore a highly relevant partner in the field of sustainable seafood production.
