The AQUAEXCEL3.0 Industry & Research Advisory Panel (IRAP) is an interactive advisory body that contributes both to upstream guidance (e.g. industry need recommendations) as well as to downstream impact/dissemination as it aims at maximizing the possibilities for new knowledge to be translated into innovation, and so substantially increases the possibilities for success.
The AQUAEXCEL3.0 IRAP will act as a pro-active interface for the project involving the research community and the aquaculture industry. This will strengthen industry-research relations and develop research that meets industry needs for innovation.
IRAP members meet online once per year to evaluate the Knowledge Outputs resulting from the AQUAEXCEL3.0 TNA projects, providing guidance and suggestions to optimize their pathway to impact.
