ERA-NET COFASP launched SRA for fisheries, aquaculture and seafood processing
In 2016 COFASP has seen the finalisation of several COFASP ERA-NET activities. At the COFASP Final Conference in December, COFASP has launched the Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) in Fisheries, Aquaculture and Seafood Processing.
The focus of the SRA is on analysing the topics that from the remit of COFASP, being fisheries, aquaculture and seafood processing, are of prime importance. These topics have been identified in different actions developed within the framework of COFASP; the foresight exercise (WP1), the analysis of the most relevant research projects funded at national and European level (WP1), the analysis of the national priorities (WP2) and the thematic Case Study Workshops (WP4). These topics will then be put in the framework of similar research priorities as defined by JPI Oceans, SEASERA and SCARFish. In the final analysis they look at how the COFASP priorities are positioned in the institutional landscape and which elements for a future strategic agenda are of importance.
At the Policy day on 10 January in Brussels, the funding partners of the COFASP ERA-NET presented and discussed the main findings and how to utilise these in future policy work and collaborations in the research area.
