Summary

Remotely located SMEs are key to the aquaculture industry across the NPA territory. Sustainable growth of the sector requires innovative new products and services, yet SMEs experience variable and constraining access to innovation services. AINNPA helps to resolve this by developing and transfering well targeted transnational solutions for innovation to aquaculture-facing SMEs and opens new markets for innovative SMEs not yet engaged with the aquaculture sector.

The main outputs from AINNPA are an integrated network of aquaculture innovation services across the participating regions; SME-led prioritisation of regionally relevant aquaculture innovation topics; and new innovative aquaculture products and services.

AINNPA activates new transnational working by remote SMEs engaged with the aquaculture supply chain, a shared model for delivering innovation services to those SMEs, and combined R&D effort to develop new aquaculture products and services with international markets.
