Vision Paper. Vision paper for “Global Aquaculture Solutions”, work commencing well ahead of the conference: This is a responsibility of an international working group appointed and lead by R&D director Aquaculture Kjell Maroni, The Norwegian Seafood Research Fund. Based on a mandate formed in interaction with the Innovation Day Chair, Karl Almås, the group will develop a vision paper on which major solutions are needed to expand global aquaculture substantially. Ahead of the conference, Dr. Maroni will request a one pager memo from each of the chairs of the Think Tanks (see below description of these) on how they see their main needs in their individual fields. The vision paper group will present a brief synthesis of major important recommended measures (shortlist) during the innovation day, also including inputs from the Think Tank workshop. The vision paper will be completed after the conference and made available through targeted distribution to decision makers and for mass distribution.
The “landscape” of challenges and opportunities. High esteem players in the sector share their visions and recommendations how and where to move to develop the “blue food” for the world and thus set the agenda for the day.
Think Tanks. In all 5 categories of Think Tanks will be run parallel and chaired by appointed persons in accordance with the below program schedule. The Think Tank Session will interact with the vision paper committee as described above and the chairs of the Think Tanks will do plenary summing up reports, again with focus on short list solutions. The general topics are carefully selected to cover in the best possible way all tracks of solutions to be pursued to move forward global aquaculture in the most cost efficient and sustainable way. The 5 categories will be reflected all through the Marine Innovation Day activities: in Think Tanks, in The Vision Paper, in the delegate grouping for Match Making and also for grouping the innovative cases.
