The ambitious objective of CtrlAQUA calls for a long-term research effort by an internationally leading multidisciplinary research team and strong industry partners.
The Centre goals are too substantial to be fulfilled by separate, shorter projects that are hard to coordinate towards a common goal.
The partners in CtrlAQUA have worked extensively together previously.
The Centre will have a decentralized model, with Nofima as the host institution, and partners in Northwestern Norway, Trondheim, Oslo area, Bergen area, West Virginia US, and Gothenburg, Sweden.
The user partners in CtrlAQUA will contribute with expertise, laboratories, prototypes, and large scale facilities, as well as competent rearing of the fish during large-scale trials.
