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.

Training Camp 4
From 6 to 16 July 2017 all 10 Early Stage Researchers (ESR) visited UiT – The Arctic University of Norway for a two-week training camp (TC). This TC is the fourth of its kind and has been devoted to several soft-skills courses.
By Rannva Danielsen, Nothing beats a good conference. A good conference will inspire your research, pose questions you hadn’t thought of before, and, if you’re still a young scientist, teach you a few [...]
