This PhD course aims at presenting and discussing trans- and interdisciplinary methodologies to study the world’s aquaculture ecosystems and their possibilities to develop. The students will be introduced to “The Triple Helix model”, a useful approach for integrating academic, public and industry partners as well as participatory design processes within the transdisciplinary approach as ways to unify stake-holder collaboration.
The course constitutes two parts: 1) one intensive week held at , Kristineberg Center for Marine Research and Innovation, which is located on the Swedish West Coast. More information about the research station Kristineberg.
2) one internet-based part (4 weeks) during which groups of 4 students work together on one “dream” aquaculture system. The system should be described and presented in its geographical, societal and value chain context as well as presented.
