ARCH-UK is an academia led network that aims to connect the UK aquaculture community through sign-posting research council funding (BBSRC/NERC), developing skills and facilitating collaboration. ARCH-UK is made up of eight working groups (see below), each include a wide range of UK aquaculture stakeholders from academia, industry and policy. If you want to get involved please come along to one of our events or let us know you are interested through the 'Contact' and 'Join us' pages.

ARCH-UK wish everyone luck in their BBSRC/NERC Aquaculture Initiative applications. ARCH-UK will disseminate guidelines openly via our FUNDING page and seek to ensure there is good advice for ECRs and first time grant writers. ARCH-UK will also liaise with BBSRC/NERC to post commonly asked questions about the call on our website. We nevertheless, recommend attendance at the Call workshop which will provide an opportunity to discuss any queries about the Call.
ARCH-UK involvement in the call:
ARCH-UK have provided aquaculture research priority reports synthesised from community discussions to aid BBSRC/NERC in formulating the Call (to view all the reports click here). ARCH-UK, however, are not involved in the application review process. The applications will remain confidential between applicants, BBSRC/NERC and their independent review panels. Once the funded Aquaculture Initiative projects are announced, ARCH-UK will continue to support the projects where possible and appropriate. There will be an annual event, open to all, that will provide a forum for updating the aquaculture community on the progress of the funded projects.
***A Call workshop was held on 6th December 2017***
Call submission deadline: 23 January 2018, 16:00
