Fisheries and aquaculture-Oriented Research Capacity in Egypt (FORCE)

Fisheries and aquaculture-Oriented Research Capacity in Egypt (FORCE), November 2011-April 2014:

The FORCE Consortium is composed of four partners from three countries: Egypt (NIOF), Italy (UNIVE and CNR-ISMAR), Ireland (AQUATT). The FORCE partnership is committed to work together and contribute their diverse and complementary skills and capacities to help in the improvement of NIOF’s research capacities in the aquaculture and fisheries sector.

The overall objectives of FORCE are; to identify the potential for more efficient collaboration between research institutions, that are focused on fisheries and aquaculture as a means of scientific and technological development and increasing sustainable yield, based in the EU and NIOF; to support NIOF in the development of a "toolbox" to assess the environmental impact of aquaculture activities; to disseminate the best practices and raise awareness among scientists, fishery inspectors and policy makers. FORCE will promote the principles and objectives outlined in the Horizon 2020 framework and EU Marine Strategies thus supporting the attainment of competent sustainable management of fisheries. FORCE will enhance the participation of Egypt in EU funded research programmes by giving NIOF the opportunity to coordinate an FP7 project.
