On the 27th of April 2022, the AQUAEXCEL3.0 IRAP members met for the 2nd time to evaluate the Knowledge Outputs resulting from the AQUAEXCEL project so far.

During the meeting, 15 KOs were assessed for their industry potential and, for each of them, the IRAP members provided suggestions and guidance to optimise their pathway to impact.

5 KOs were evaluated as being ready for presentation to a broader audience, and in specific the aquaculture industry. All KO owners will present the following topics at the 1st physical industry brokerage event that will take place in Rimini (Italy), in September 2022, during the Aquaculture Europe event
