Aquaculture UK, Aviemore
ARCH-UK funded 10 ECRs to attend the largest UK industry conference, Aquaculture UK, in Aviemore in 2018. Six were given the opportunity to present an elevator pitch to industry during the ‘SAIC Aquavation’ session with guidance from NERC KE Fellow Dr Sofia Cota-Franco and with funding from SAIC. A campaign about the KE event was launched via social media through various infographics designed by Sofia Cota-Franco (see example below).
The short 5-minute video below was produced in collaboration with University of Stirling media students to highlight the ECR experience of the event. The video aimed to; communicate what ECRs gained from attending and presenting; encourage academics to use industry facing events to gain industry perspective and source project partners or support.
