New paper on machine learning and social network analysis out in Fish and Fisheries

2019-06-25T10:19:13+00:00June 25th, 2019|

Over the past decades, socio-environmental problems have multiplied. In response, policymakers and scientists have increasingly called for collaboration, arguing that answers to these problems will not be found within the traditional boundaries of disciplines, sectors, or, for instance, States. The way collaboration is occurring can, however, provide us with important insights into the ideas that emanate [...]

Making RRI a reality?

2018-06-13T10:12:04+00:00June 13th, 2018|

Last week, 8-9 June 2018, our ESR Lia ní Aodha took part in a Social Lab organised as part of the NewHoRRizon-project, that is working to foster the integration of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) into European, national and local research practice, and funding. SAF21 was invited to participate as the project scores highly in terms [...]

Rannvá Danielsen publishes paper in Marine Policy

2018-05-28T06:34:32+00:00May 28th, 2018|

Our ESR Rannvá Danielsen has published the paper “Fisheries policy in the Faroe Islands: Managing for failure?” in Marine Policy. The paper explores fisheries policy in the Faroe Islands between 1948, when the Faroe Islands gained competence over fisheries policy, and 2018. In this time period, the Faroe Islands have gone through several different management regimes [...]

Workshop on Uses of Machine Learning in Fisheries
