AQUAMED Project Objective

AQUAMED - The future of research on aquaculture in the Mediterranean region - will promote innovative Mediterranean research and focus on the most relevant issues needed to sustain aquaculture in the region. It will strengthen the EU-Mediterranean partnership in developing common projects, and in planning for the challenges Mediterranean aquaculture faces, now and into the future.

Anticipated Results

AQUAMED will make a valuable contribution to the Mediterranean Partnership enabling southern and eastern Mediterranean countries to collaborate with their EU counterparts. This cooperation will facilitate capacity building to enhance the harmonisation of aquaculture and research policies in the Mediterranean basin. The main achievements of AQUAMED will be:

  • Coordinated research activities across EU Member States and third countries in the Mediterranean region;
  • Synergies between stakeholders and a network of partners committed to mutually agreed applied research objectives;
  • A sustainability pathway for transnational joint research activities through a multi-stakeholder platform, a long-term structure to be used after the project is completed.
