The SBRC team contributed to the organization of a one-day seminar on Aquaculture Research and Collaboration UAE-Japan. This event was organized in collaboration with the Institute of Energy Economics, Japan (IEEJ) through Kindai University. The seminar took place on Sunday 17 of February 2019 at the Masdar Campus. The goal of this seminar was exploring potential research collaboration areas between the two countries while also providing an opportunity to bring together aquaculture stakeholders in academia, government and industry from UAE and Japan.
The agenda of the Seminar included a session on the Current State of Aquaculture in the UAE, followed by a second session on Research Opportunities and a round table discussion. The participants also had the chance to visit the Seawater Energy and Agriculture System facility (SEAS).
