Materials Management Workshop -Expression of Interest
The Atlantic Canada Aquaculture Industry Research and Development Network (ACAIRDN) is considering organizing and hosting a Materials Management Workshop in 2015 on behalf of the members of the four Atlantic Canadian aquaculture associations. We are currently looking for expressions of interest for this initiative in order to decide whether or not this workshop will go ahead. With an endorsement from industry, this workshop would examine the production, management and use of secondary materials within the aquaculture industry. We would then utilize the information presented to discuss challenges and opportunities in materials management and areas of focus where research and development could enhance company competitiveness and ensure that we continue to refine our waste management practices.
The Atlantic Canada Aquaculture Industry Research and Development Network (ACAIRDN) is an initiative of the aquaculture associations in each of the four Atlantic Canada provinces in cooperation with the National Research Council – Industry Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP). With a Research and Development Coordinator (RDC) placed within each association, the network acts to identify and broadcast industry’s R&D needs within the aquaculture community, coordinate R&D efforts, reduce duplication and promote regional collaboration.
