Within task 7.4 in the FarFish project, Development of a university level Certificate program in Marine Management and Innovation, a certificate-awarding programme has been set up consisting of short courses taught by different FarFish institutions. The short-term courses are designed to further educate especially fish business operators and EU fleet representatives.
The planned programme is made up by several short-term courses and two main topics have been selected for the focus of the programme: Laws and regulations, and Value chain analysis. The first course will be run in March 2020 in Tromsø, Norway, with parallel streamed sessions 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, and to provide an open access and adaptable on-line course for at least five years after project end.
