Training as part of research projects

I have been involved in a number of national and international research projects; currently I coordinate the ClimeFish EU project, and I have key roles in the MareFrame project, the SAF-21 project, and in the upcoming FarFish project. To ensure that research projects have high impact, that results are communicated and that tools developed are implemented, I and my colleagues in Norway and Europe always include training activities among the project deliverables. In ClimeFish we arrange advanced training schools, as well as webinars demonstrating new tools for climate adaptation in aquaculture and fisheries, incorporating socio-economic issues In MareFrame, a master course is included in the fisheries program at the University of Iceland and a PhD course on EcoPath is run in Tromsø. In ClimeFish we arrange advanced training schools, as well as webinars demonstrating new tools for climate adaptation in aquaculture and fisheries, incorporating socio-economic issues. In the upcoming FarFish project, intensive courses for stakeholders and scientists from third world countries are planned.

The SAF-21 project trains 10 PhD candidates throughout Europe. Two of the PhD candidates are admitted at UiT, at least three have secondments with UiT during the lifetime of the project, and two training camps are hosted by UiT in Tromsø.
