IMPAQT aims to develop and validate in-situ a multi-purpose, multi-sensing and multi-functional management platform for sustainable Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture production.The high-level ambition is to drive a paradigm shift in the European Industry and its acceptance of IMTA as a viable approach, by paving the way to both a more environmentally friendly and more efficient/higher yielding European Industry.
IMPAQT project aims to:
- Design and implement new/emerging efficient and cost-effective technologies in monitoring and management systems for IMTA production
- demonstrate an optimal sustainable IMTA development in a holistic perspective based on ecosystem services and circular economy principles
- Validate the IMPAQT systems and IMTA model in-situ and the fish/seafood product in laboratory
- Promote an effective transfer of knowledge derived by IMPAQT activities to the EU aquaculture stakeholders
