Seafood-Age project promoted in the Business2Sea event

The Business2Sea yearly event was carried out in Porto between 11th and 13th of November. Its agenda offered as usual a broad variety of activities, including conference, workshops, pitch presentations, business-to-business meetings, exhibition area and gastronomic seafood experiences. In addition, this year’s edition hosted the 6th Atlantic Stakeholder Platform Conference and the Annual Event of the Interreg Atlantic Area Programme. The Portuguese Minister of the Sea, Mr. Ricardo Serrão Santos, was visiting the Business2Sea on Tuesday 12th.

CETMAR and IIM-CSIC played a relevant role in the organization and development of the event, and both organizations participated in all the proposed activities, including both stands in the exhibition area. The Seafood-Age was presented in a number of meetings and interviews and the project poster was displayed during the three days of the event.

Seafood-Age 2nd Project Meeting

The Seafood-Age consortium met in Lisbon (Portugal) on the 6th and 7th of November to host the 6M Project Meeting. The meeting consisted of a 2-day event in which partners reviewed the progress achieved and designed the Execution Plan for 2020. The meeting was held at the IPMA’s premises and was co-organised by IIM-CSIC, IPMA and INXENIA.

The first day started with a Co-creation workshop led by CETMAR. The workshop aimed at exploring, together with our stakeholders, the desirable properties of Seafood-Age products (RTE seafood, eco-packaging and smart predictive labels).

The first coordination meeting of the SEAFOOD-AGE project took place on 14 May in CETMAR’s facilities.

During the session, the eight work packages leaders presented the objectives, the responsibilities of the partners involved, a breakdown of the activities and the timetable in which they will be executed, as well as the expected results and deliverables. 

This first contact served to launch the project, create working groups and start the execution of scheduled tasks.
