FORCE supports the sustainable development of aquaculture and fishery in Egypt and the whole Mediterranean North African region.


TITLE: Fisheries and Aquaculture-Oriented Research Capacity in Egypt
PROGRAMME: FP7 Capacities
TOTAL BUDGET: €589,982
EC CONTRIBUTION: €499,557
DURATION: November 2011 - April 2014
COORDINATOR: National Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries (NIOF), Egypt
CONSORTIUM: 4 partners, 3 of which are based in Europe and 1 in Africa

One of the main factors which impedes the sustainable development of aquaculture and fishery in Egypt as well as the whole Mediterranean North African region is the lack of transfer of state-of-the-art S&T. It is of paramount importance that cooperation with the EU and its neighbours is reinforced and that the production of knowledge and scientific excellence is enhanced, on the basis of mutual interest and mutual benefit.

FORCE is designed to enhance the capacity of the Egyptian National Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries (NIOF) to carry out research activities aimed at supporting the implementation of science-based policies for the sustainable development of fisheries and aquaculture in Egypt, as well as in the whole Mediterranean North African region. FORCE will enable NIOF to fill the scientific and technological gap.
