Strategic Research Agenda – For Fisheries, Aquaculture and Seafood Processing
This document provides an analysis of elements for a strategic research agenda. The focus is on analysing the topics that from the remit of COFASP, being fisheries, aquaculture and seafood processing, are of prime importance. These topics have been identified in different actions developed within the framework of COFASP; the foresight exercise (WP1), the analysis of the most relevant research projects funded at national and European level (WP1), the analysis of the national priorities (WP2) and the thematic Case Study Workshops (WP4). These topics will then be put in the framework of similar research priorities as defined by JPI Oceans, SEASERA and SCARFish. In the final analysis we will look at how the COFASP priorities are positioned in the institutional landscape and which elements for a future strategic agenda are of importance.
