The industry’s commitment to supporting scientific research to underpin growth and development is set to move ahead with the formal launch of the Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC) in June 2014.

 

Five years of funding for the SAIC have now been secured from the Scottish Funding Council, in partnership with Highlands & Islands Enterprise and Scottish Enterprise and the aquaculture industry. The SAIC will bring thirteen Scottish Higher Education Institutions together with a large number of aquaculture businesses to support problem solving research specifically designed to deliver economic development.


The Centre will also focus on knowledge exchange and training.  All of the SAIC’s activities will promote collaboration between Scottish aquaculture businesses and the Scottish academic and research community.

Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre | Transforming Scottish Aquaculture

Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre | Transforming Scottish Aquaculture | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it
The Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC) will provide transformational change in the relationship between the aquaculture industry, the research community and Government to overcome these issues and release Scotland’s potential. Investment in the SAIC will help transform aquaculture’s already substantial contribution to the Scottish economy, with many of the benefits concentrated in fragile rural communities. The Scottish Government has adopted industry targets for increased production. In the salmon industry alone, meeting these targets would contribute an additional £500 million to the Scottish economy per year. If we consider the wider sector, including trout, shellfish, supply chain and all supporting businesses, then the overall financial contribution to the Scottish economy could exceed £1 billion. SAIC will bring together the key players in this strategically important industry, focusing on removing current and future obstacles, creating wealth and long term employment.
