The Invitation (norwegian)



Edit: there were 24 participants that represented the whole aquaculture value chain:
  • fish farming companies
  • their suppliers (especially new technologies)
  • VET schools
  • training offices
  • innovation companies and their business consultants
  • municipalities 
  • county representatives
  • business gardens
  • and business associations
ASFF (Aquaculture Skills Foresight Forum) is a platform where aquaculture schools and industry and their suppliers, can share openly what challenges the participants have, what educational needs the industry has today, as well as what they envision for the future. In this way, schools can prepare measures to continuously offer up-to-date, relevant and practical education. This forum is also an opportunity to discuss collaboration opportunities between participants and set action points. 
This year's agenda for ASFF at Frøya will reflect Aquaculture Week's programming: digitisation, digitalisation, digital modelling and sustainability.
Specifically, how schools can help aquaculture companies and their fish health technology suppliers test and implement new products and services such as sensors and monitoring programs.
State agencies and innovation companies are encouraged to attend as they often have insight into up-to-date application opportunities for financial and operational support.
