H2020 project ClimeFish funded

It is with pleasure that we can announce that the project ClimeFish has been granted funding as part of the H2020 framework programme for research and innovation. ClimeFish will investigate the impact of climate change on fisheries and aquaculture producers in the EU. The overall objective of ClimeFish is to support sustainable fisheries, enable an increase in European aquaculture production, facilitate employment and regional development in the sectors, and develop forecasting and management tools for adapting to CC; all in co-creation with stakeholders.

Syntesa will be work package leader, responsible for the identification of risks and opportunities of climate change. The consortium consists of 21 partners from Europe, Chile, Canada and Vietnam.

Syntesa looks very much forward to starting the work on this interesting project, which will start on April 1 2016.
