University of Ancona, Italy
The group of Fisheries Economists from the University of Ancona - Agricultural Faculty - is close to completing the project "The impact of technological innovation on the employment structure of the Italian fishing industry". The project was presented during the last EAFE Conference in Esbjerg and will end in July. The results will be presented at a workshop to be held at the University in September. Further details will soon be available on the University website www.unian.it.
The results of this project, funded by EU DG Research, will provide detailed information and results of field analyses, with regard to the following questions of relevance for Italian fishery management:
All details regarding the workshop will also be communicated to EAFE members. For those that will not be able to participate, but are interested in results of this project, a project summary will be presented in the next issue of the EAFE bulletin. The issue will also contain a complete programme of our Masters in Fishery Economics and Management of Marine Resources, including the required entrance criteria.
