Could a Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre student tackle your business challenges?

The Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC) has funding for 25 MSc places at the Universities of Stirling and Dundee, starting in September 2015. 

The 25 SAIC Scholars will do their MSc project work in collaboration with SAIC Consortium member companies, and they are inviting companies to suggest one or more 3-month MSc projects that could help their business.

Projects should relate to one of SAIC's four Priority Innovation Areas: 

  • sea lice control
  • rapid detection of viral pathogens
  • alternative sustainable feeds for finfish
  • sustainable supplies of shellfish spat.

The places and projects will be split between the Aquatic Veterinary Studies and Sustainable Aquaculture MSc courses at the Institute of Aquaculture, University of Stirling, and Geotechnical Engineering MSc courses at the University of Dundee.

The deadline for submitting project ideas is 31 May 2015. 

Please contact Cori Critchlow-Watton at with project proposals, or to discuss ideas.
