Last week the FarFish project offered a university level certificate program in marine management and innovation at the University of Tromsø. The program consisted of short modules taught by FarFish institutions and were designed to further educate fish business operators and EU fleet representatives in particular.
Two main topics have been selected for the focus of the programme: laws and regulations, and value chain analysis. The sessions were streamed in parallel in Vigo, Spain, and Reykjavik, Iceland. UiT – The Arctic University of Norway is responsible for coordination and administration of the programme.
The aim is to educate at least 5 students to graduation in 2020, and to provide an open access and adaptable on-line course for at least five years after the project ends. For the course launch in March 2020 students are required to travel to Tromsø in order to participate.
All the presentations are available here.
