Commercial Aquaponics: How to develop a business opportunity 9 – 12 September 2015 University of Iceland 

 

This training school will consist of a number of lectures and practical classes on the principles of business models for aquaponics. Participants will be introduced to the current state-of-the-art in aquaponics, commercial systems in the USA and commercial systems being established in Europe. Topics will include basics in economics and economic models and methodologies to develop business plans for aquaponics based on different assumptions. Aquaponics business challenges will be introduced and the class will work on their own business cases, either in groups or individually. Moreover, sustainability aspects will be discussed as well as how a circular economy can be applied in business cases. Large vs small-scale aquaponic systems and high tech vs low tech aquaponics will be compared, and the concept urban aquaponics will be introduced.

COST Action FA1305 is offering 15 places on the training school on a competitive basis. Successful applicants will be offered a maximum grant of €1120 as a contribution towards the costs of travel, accommodation and meals. The deadline for applications is Wednesday 12 August.

This is a bit of an old story, but an interesting one none-the-less.  The cost of these systems is currently prohibitive... but if the costs could be brought down then these could be an interesting solution for urban areas.
