Workshop: R&D Network: Driving Industry Research



The Atlantic Canada Aquaculture Industry Research and Development Network (ACAIRDN) held a workshop entitled R&D Network Driving Industry Research, in conjunction with the Aquaculture Association of Canada's (AAC) annual meeting in Saint John May 11-14, 2008

The workshop highlighted the research activities that are being driven by the R&D Network, brought together researchers, academics and industry to share information about research projects that are being driven by industry, and to discuss common research priorities and potential research collaborations. This allowed for an alignment of priorities in order to facilitate the development of projects addressing the needs of industry.

ACAIRDN is a unified voice for the Atlantic Canadian Aquaculture Industry in matters of R&D, providing leadership, coordination and communication for the direct benefit of the industry. The Network first began in 2002, with the placement of Research and Development Coordinators (RDC's) at each of the major aquaculture industry associations in Atlantic Canada.
