EU platform for fishery and aquaculture producer organisation - Aquaculture Workshop Moderator EU
DG MARE Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (European Commission) - Project Dates:
July 2020 - September 2020
Description of Project:
The objective of this assignment was to investigate the need and explore potential ways forward to strengthen the transnationalisation of CMO (Common Organisation of Markets) recognised professional organisations in the fishery and aquaculture sector in the EU Member State. The project asked for the testing of additional services that could encourage networking between POs, APOs and IBOs in the sector and strengthen transnational cooperation between organisations.
During this peak period of COVID-19, Tetra Tech organised a number of virtual events with the participation of aquaculture producer organisations including one entitled "Why and how can we strengthen cross-border dimension of aquaculture producer organisations in the EU?".
A Poseidon Europe Director acted as a host and moderator for a Workshop session entitled "Why and how can we strengthen cross-border dimension of aquaculture producer organisations in the EU?". In particular Poseidon:
- Moderated the discussion during the online event organised by TT for DG MARE, including moderation of panel discussion and open discussion
- Prepared the event brief, including description of the event and questions to the panel;
- Carried out preparatory work including calls and discussions with the project teams and speakers.
