Smalle Tech at the Acuiplus Cluster workshop

The Spanish aquaculture cluster Acuiplus, in collaboration with the Spanish Aquaculture Society (SEA) and the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM) organized a workshop on the theme ‘Innovation challenges in the aquaculture sector.’ The event was held in Madrid, on March 15th, 2018. Smalle Technologies was present at the event as a member of the Acuiplus Cluster.

The event gathered representatives from the Spanish institutions, research centres and universities, associations and companies in the aquaculture sector. The focus of the workshop was on four main aspects of the aquaculture business: communication, sector management, sustainability and entrepreneurship. Moreover, some other aspects were discussed, such as the internalisation strategies, the expertise transfer from the research centres to industry and the challenge of attraction and retention of talent. Furthermore, it was also mentioned the relatively low level of technological development of some fish farms. In this aspect, Smalle Tech can contribute to the aquaculture sector innovation with real-time monitoring, autonomous sensors and electric generators specifically designed for marine fish farms.
