PrAEctiCe signs MoU with Aquaponics OPTI

On the 2nd of April, PrAEctiCe and Aquaponics OPTI signed a Dissemination and Communication Memorandum of Understanding. This will enable each consortium to benefit from the common activities in their respective strategies. They will also work together on specific activities aimed at facilitating and supporting mutual cooperation, exchanging knowledge and good practices, partnering up in the organisation of future events, and any dissemination and communication activities that can benefit both parties.

Aquaponics OPTI is a multidisciplinary research consortium that includes experts from seven countries on five continents. Their project focuses on optimising aquaponics to reduce its environmental footprint and increase its social and economic benefits. The aim is to create a climate-change-resilient food production system that reduces, reuses, and recycles inputs while increasing nutrient and water use efficiencies. Additionally, the project aims to find ways to produce food that adapts to local climate change conditions and build community capacity to support and sustain positive change through skills development and knowledge exchange.

The consortium comprises seven institutions worldwide, including the University of Washington in the USA, Ataturk University in Turkey, the Leibniz-Institute of Vegetable and Ornamental Crops (IGZ) in Germany, the National Taiwan Ocean University in Taiwan, the Universidade Estadual Paulista in Brazil, and the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa and The University of Gothenburg in Sweden. The University of Gothenburg in Sweden is also a PrAEctiCe project partner led by Associate Professor Dr. Alyssa Joyce.

Dr Alyssa Joyce is the Project Coordinator at Aquaponics OPTI and an expert in aquaculture and aquaponics. She has worked on a wide range of international projects aimed at increasing food production’s sustainability within the concept of a more circular bioeconomy.
