The MARINA project is being funded under the Horizon 2020 Programme, and aims to integrate citizens’ visions, needs and desires into science and innovation, promoting Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) focusing on marine issues and pressures that have significant effects on the European societies.

As part of the initiatives implemented to accomplish this aim, the project has created an all-inclusive Knowledge Sharing Platform catalysing and organising the convergence of already existing networks, communities, on-line platforms and services providing an online socio-technical environment that facilitates and stimulates the direct engagement of researchers, Civil Society Organisations, citizens, industry stakeholders, policy and decision makers, research funders and communicators for improving Responsible Research and Innovation.

In line with this, the MARINA workshop titled “Enhancing ethics and economics in aquaculture”, that was yesterday (March 25th), in Brussels. It meant to foster a collaborative debate focusing on methods and technologies for the governance of the aquaculture through a responsible approach to the research, innovation, and use of digital technologies for automation.

The MARIE project was represented by Rosa Fernández, member of the Galicia regional administration, who delivered a presentation on how actions on aquaculture in her region can include RRI approaches, and on how MARIE actions are developing.
