Social Science Aspects of Fisheries for the 21st Century
Aim of the Project
The aim of the SAF21 project is to understand how to manage socio-ecological complex systems better. This knowledge will inform the development of innovative management strategies, particularly to address a shift to new regulatory regimes, which is necessary for the success of future complex pan-European initiatives.
The SAF21 project will focus on EU fisheries, a complex system, to develop effective fisheries management strategies. The research and development will be undertaken by a group of social scientists of the future, managed by the SAF21 consortium, a mix of academic and commercial organisations.
What is unique about the SAF21 project is the way the research and training programme is structured. We offer a practical, collaborative approach to learning, combining research with developing business management skills through placements and training. Through this we aim to improve the commercialisation of R&D results, increase the employability of the researchers, expand the impact of such projects through education, outreach and communication to wider communities as well as enabling more effective fisheries management.
SAF21 Network Meeting 5
The 5th Network Meeting of the SAF21 project will take place in Copenhagen, Denmark, in the period 19-20 June 2018. The SAF21 ESRs are in the final stages of their PhDs and as such, during this meeting they will discuss policy relevance and the general public relevance of their research. In addition, they will describe to their colleagues the PhD defence procedures at the institution where they are enrolled in a PhD program.

SAF21 @ Eurodoc Conference 2018
SAF21 aims to contribute to doctoral training on a European level. Therefore, Charlotte Weber has joined the Working Group on Doctoral Training from Eurodoc – the European Council for Doctoral Candidates and Junior Researchers. The working group is currently preparing a practical guide for doctoral candidates that will help them identify, develop and document transferable skills. Transferable skills are a trending topic, as they are extremely important for early career researchers looking for employment within or outside of academia. Charlotte introduces the transferable skills guide during her presentation at the Eurodoc Conference 2018, in Tampere, Finland.
SAF21 WORKSHOP 4
This last October all SAF21 ESRs have met for the 4th workshop meeting in Vigo, Spain. The workshop, hosted by CETMAR, focused on linkages between management and governance, and human and social dynamics, in addition to participatory process in fisheries management. On top of that, SAF21 participated in the 2017 Climathon edition.
To give you a little taste of the workshop and climathon, we captured it in moving images for you. Now watch and enjoy!
SAF21 is a project financed under the EU Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie MSCA-ETN programme (project 642080).
