The aim of this programme is to foster collaborative activities between academic researchers and business representatives at all career stages to identify and develop new approaches to solving major research challenges and help to deliver key benefits to the UK aquaculture sector.
The aim of the Aquaculture Research Collaborative Hub (ARCH-UK) is to foster collaborative activities between academic researchers and business representatives at all career stages to identify and develop new approaches to tackle major research challenges and help deliver key benefits to the UK aquaculture sector.
ARCH-UK is interdisciplinary, working across the boundaries of biological and environmental science and encouraging the participation of other disciplines including engineering, economics, social science, remote sensing and computational modelling.
It facilitates the development of a community of people who work together towards a mutual goal of sustainable aquaculture systems and work with the research councils to help ensure their investments support high-quality innovative research that builds UK academic capability and underpinning capacity and meets the long-term needs of the sector.
ARCH-UK provides a central hub for information sharing, networking and engagement. Annual science meetings are held to bring together researchers and stakeholders to discuss current and future aquaculture research. ARCH-UK identifies the need for workshops and training and organises events to address community needs.
Joining ARCH-UK is free and all members of the aquaculture sector are encouraged to engage with ARCH-UK in order to receive news and updates, attend events and provide input on activities.
