SIU grant through the High North Programme to UiS - “Fishery and Aquaculture Technology in Cold Climate Region”.


The Norwegian Centre for International Cooperation in Education (SIU) recently allocated funding for 8 short-term projects. The project “Fishery and Aquaculture Technology in Cold Climate Region” - a collaboration between UiS, Chonnam National University (CNU) in the Republic of Korea and SINTEF Fisheries and Aquaculture, was granted support.

The collaboration started with a visit from Prof Muk Chen Ong (IKM) to the College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences at Chonnam National University this summer. Both institutions have strong educational activities in the fields of marine technology and fishery. As there is a need for specific knowledge and research on challenges related to the fishery and aquaculture activities in a harsh cold climate environment, the partners decided to make a project proposal and apply for funding through the High North Programme. The long-term aim of the project is to develop a joint master course on “Fishery and Aquaculture Technology in Cold Climate Region” between UiS and Chonnam National University.

The project will offer an opportunity to faculty and administrative staff to work together on how to establish a joint study course that is of high relevance to both universities and the High North Programme. Two exchange visits, one at each institution, will help delegates from both places to meet other faculty members and understand the work culture at the two places. These meetings will also include workshops with guest lectures that are open to other faculty members, students and invited enterprises. Active participation of SINTEF Fisheries and Aquaculture will ensure that the course is not only academically robust but of practical relevance as well.


Project period: January - December 2017.
