The program starts with the official opening of CtrlAQUA by the Research Council of Norway. The meeting will also include information about the departments, and the user partners will present their goals for CtrlAQUA and closed aquaculture systems. And we continue with much much more.

The goal for the kick-off is to get to know each other well, and find good ways to work together.

And last, but not least, to plan activities for 2015 so we can start the research in CtrlAQUA!
