‘Aquaponics: From Science to Practice‘ is the final COST FA 1305 conference.
Join us at the University of Greenwich (London) in April to hear about our achievements over the past four years, and to get insight to the latest research and development in aquaponics. The event is free.

COST Action FA1305 EU Aquaponics Hub
Organiser of Aquaponics: From Science to Practice
The EU Aquaponics Hub is a four year COST (Cooperation in Science and Technology) networking Action that brings together a heterogenous group of scientists, researchers and SMEs from across the EU and around the globe to better understand the state of knowledge in aquaponics in Europe and around the world and to facilitate innovation and education in this field of sustainable fish and vegetal food production.
The EU Aquaponics Hub is composed of members from: Armenia, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Serbia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, UK and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
The EU Aquaponics Hub organises regular conferences and training schools on aquaponics, and facilitates the research of PhD students and postdocs through the provision of grants for Short Term Scientific Missions. More details can be found on the EU Aquaponics Hub website.
