Norwegian Low Trophic Aquaculture Network

Tildelt: kr 1,0 mill.

Prosjektet NoLTANet (Norwegian Low Trophic Aquaculture Network) har som formål å lage et varig nettverk for 30+ norske aktører som driver industrivirksomhet eller forskning relatert til lavtrofisk akvakultur. Den viktigste leveransen fra prosjektet er den nettbaserte informasjons-huben "ALTANet" (Atlantic Low Trophic Aquaculture Network, https://altanet.info/) med link til informasjon om prosjekter, utlysninger, webinarer, publikasjoner, nyheter, nettsteder og bilder. Siden interessen for lavtrofisk akvakultur går utover Norges grenser inneholder nettsiden informasjon om lavtrofisk akvakultur i hele Atlanterhavsregionen. Hittil har det blitt holdt virtuelle møter med de andre prosjektdeltakerne (UiT, Norce og Bellona), en kravspesifikasjon for nettstedet ble lagd og domenenavnet altanet.info ble kjøpt. Nettsiden er opprettet og oppdatert med innhold manuelt og er nå oppe og går. Vi planlegger å bruke kunstig intelligens med en webcrawler som vil saumfare nettet på jakt etter de siste nyhetene om lavtrofisk akvakultur og automatisk fylle ut kategorien "nyheter" på nettstedet. Dette vil bli implementert i nær fremtid.

NoLTANet will create a network of Norwegian stakeholders involved and interested in Low Trophic Aquaculture (LTA). This is a rapidly expanding research and innovation area, there are many Norwegian industry, research, and other organizations working in this field, but there is currently no common forum where they can meet, discuss, and exchange views and practices. NoLTANet will alleviate this situation by establishing a network with at least 30 members, by producing newsletters, by setting up a website with a discussion forum and links to relevant news stories, articles, reports, conferences, and initiatives, and by hosting at least two plenary network meetings. NoLTANet has been designed to interact with 3 ongoing H2020 projects: AquaVitae, ASTRAL and AANChOR. All of these are “All Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance Flagship” projects which means they have significant representation from Brazil and South Africa, they are rather large (8 / 8 / 4 MEUR EU contribution), and they are expected to run for 54 months, starting in 2019/2020. These projects contain a number of outreach activities; both activities designed to disseminate and communicate from these projects to interested parties, and activities designed to elicit preferences and requirements from stakeholders to inform the planned research, innovation, and standardization activities (AquaVitae will make a European LTA standard). NoLTANet will ensure that Norwegian LTA organizations are in a position to utilize the outputs from these projects, and also that the views and preferences of Norwegian stakeholders are taken into consideration in the upcoming research and standardization activities. Early drafts of upcoming European research work programmes (Horizon Europe in particular) indicate numerous funding opportunities for LTA related research; NoLTANet will engage and inform Norwegian LTA organizations about these calls and ensure significant Norwegian participation in future European projects in this area.
