About AquaTT

AquaTT was founded in 1992 under the EU COMETT programme as the University Enterprise Training Partnership (UETP) for the European aquaculture industry, arising from a clear need to coordinate the training requirements of the industry through a single body. AquaTT's corporate owners are University College Cork and  the National University of Galway, Ireland. Company operations today are led by a senior management team, and supported by an experienced staff of programme managers and project officers.
AquaTT is participating in FP7 contracts valued at more than €38 M, and €5.8 M to Ireland (AquaTT €2.9 M), which is why our management and support staff team has tripled in the last 2 years ensuring capacity to deliver on our commitments. The company is governed by our Board of Directors, with four Irish directors and three European directors. A representative from the Federation of European Aquaculture Producers (FEAP) also has a non-voting position.

AquaTT is a specialist in scientific knowledge transfer and management activities and works together with Europe’s best researchers and innovators to tackle the big societal challenges facing Europe at the moment. AquaTT is a successful key player in European research consortia, playing a role in end-user focused activities such as communication, dissemination and effective scientific knowledge identification, collection and transfer, facilitating better market take-up of European research findings.
