Growing the aquaculture talent pool

SAIC is dedicated to helping grow the aquaculture talent pool. We fund innovative research projects, Masters programmes, undergraduate travel grants, leadership and management training and support sector diversity.

Our Aquaculture Innovation & Industry Engagement Programme is designed to equip high potential industry staff and PhD students with the skills and confidence to drive innovation in the aquaculture industry. The bespoke programme focuses on the needs of the aquaculture industry, developing valuable transferrable skills and building meaningful links with industry leaders. All training will be relevant and embedded in the aquaculture industry.

A limited number of free spaces are available on the 2019 programme only for:

  • PhD students who are members of the MASTS Graduate School and registered for the Postgraduate Certificate in Researcher Professional Development.

  • High potential staff selected from the Scottish Aquaculture industry

The programme will consist of three 2-day residential workshops, during which participants will work to solve a real aquaculture business challenge. The programme culminates with a final day presentation to industry representatives. Development of industry ready skills will enable participants to contribute more to work environments.
