The field course will explore blue/green economy or entrepreneurship in marine aquaculture in arctic and sub-arctic regions. Students will get an insight into the state of the art through lectures and visits to companies. The curriculum will focus on today’s limitations and challenges, an introduction to sustainable resource use and innovative management. Participants will then work individually or in groups on a range of ideas, leading to a business model according to the ‘Business Model Canvas’ for each project.
Only for students in Coastal Communities and Regional Development (MA programme)
On completion of the course, a student:
- can identify contemporary challenges in marine aquaculture.
