Aquaculture in Motion 2013 - FEAP

Aquaculture in Motion 2013 - FEAP | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

FEAP organised the 2nd edition of 'Aquaculture in Motion',  Wednesday 6th of November in Le Méridien Hotel in Brussels. This year the event focussed on the ‘Strategic Guidelines for the Sustainable Development of European Aquaculture’ that were published by the European Commission in April 2013. These Guidelines aim to assist the EU Member States to define national targets while taking account of their circumstances, institutional arrangements and relative positions in terms of aquaculture activities. While the aims to promote aquaculture are intended to be achieved through a voluntary open process of coordination, it is also proposed, where appropriate, that common objectives be identified, alongside measurable indicators for progress.


In providing a focus on the need for quantified targets and relevant indicators, Aquaculture in Motion intends to stimulate the identification of Best Practice for the key performance indicators that need to be agreed as measures of progress and development. Moving European aquaculture forward with successful sustainable strategies was the target of this year’s Aquaculture in Motion.

John Bostock's insight:

Presentations from this conference are now available via the weblink. They provides some useful insights into the constraints and policy issues for European aquaculture development

The ISAFE2 will once again bring educators, students and training agencies from across the aquaculture and fisheries industries, teaching institutions and education regulatory agencies to discuss many critical issues pertaining to the needs of the industry on the one hand and the issues confronting the training, academic and education regulatory agencies in ensuring a sustainable well-educated industry sector on the other hand in the Asia-Pacific (AP) region.

   ● Discuss the current status of aquaculture and fisheries education in the AP countries with special reference to

     √ Curricula and courses;

     √ Accreditations, quality and certification; and

     √ Collaboration and partnership.

   ● Examine the existing and future linkages between AFS and regional educators with international agencies and institutions.

  ● Explore the on-going development of distance education and its impacts on the delivery of aquaculture and fisheries education. Presentation and working language in the symposium will be English. Welcome to Shanghai Ocean University and the fabulous city of Shanghai in April 2015!

2014 EDEN Annual Conference

2014 EDEN Annual Conference | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

10-13 June 2014 in Zagreb, Croatia 

 

Developing human potential has been a persistent EU policy aim even in the recent years of economic crisis. Among the goals of the European Strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, Europe 2020, we find employment and innovation, featuring education as a major lever.

 

European education and training systems are often criticised for not properly responding to social needs, and even that employers, education providers, and youth live in parallel universes. Universities’ reputation often comes from the visible, high level relations with prestigious corporations. E-learning, as a system integrator, may help education providers and employers to actively step into one another’s worlds.

 

Workplace-based training supported by ICT tools is part of the solution to reduce skill shortages and mismatches. E-learning has become a dominant delivery method in learning settings at work across various sectors and a wide range of company sizes. Its advantages may be many, including flexibility, cost and time savings, and new work habits and improved working climate. ICT-enhanced learning may improve organisational performance and lead to increased staff commitment and the generation of new ideas.

 

E-learning is often used by companies to inform and educate not only their employees but also customers, as part of their branding and marketing strategy and activities. The conference will explore these themes and issues - call for papers open until 31 January 2014.

 

 

 
John Bostock's insight:

Looks a very interesting theme for next year's EDEN Conference - Call for papers now open.
