SEFARI FELLOWSHIP with the Life Sciences Scotland Industry Leadership Group - Animal Health, Agritech and Aquaculture sub-group

Project Details

Description

SEFARI Gateway has been working with the the Life Sciences Scotland Industry Leadership Group - Animal Health, Agritech and Aquaculture (AAA) sub-group to understand the opportunities for the AAA sector in Scotland. The AAA sector as defined by the LSS ILG includes all activities relating to:
•interventions that improve the health of livestock and companion animals
•the breeding and rearing of fish, shellfish, plants, algae, and other organisms in water environments
•the development of novel technology for agriculture ensuring improved productivity and sustainability

Scotland’s AAA sector underpins Scotland’s high performing food and drink industry and is also important to life sciences and technology sectors. Despite being viewed as important for Scotland and indeed Scotland being felt to be a major contributor in the animal science sector globally, little validated information is available for AAA.

In order to increase both the understanding of sectoral opportunities and collaboration of all stakeholders in the sector (public, academic, private), this fellowship will develop knowledge about the sector, that could contribute to a fuller consideration of its strengths/weaknesses, competitive advantages/disadvantages and opportunities or challenges.

The core purpose of this fellowship is to help understand the current structure and size of the AAA sector in Scotland including academic expertise, research areas and key businesses.
