Communication is fundamental in a world that interacts more and more on a global scale. However, it’s easy to get lost in the ocean of information.
Three students of fisheries science, who met during an inspiring summer course in Iceland, kept in touch and shared regular discussions, interesting news and their enthusiasm for marine research. Out of this fruitful connection, the Fisheries Research Network (Finet) was born.
The core objective of the project is to get the people connected on a personal base by creating a network of young scientists who will communicate and interact through weekly paper-discussions, meetings and ideally the development of a common project.
Finet is independent, free and open to anyone who shares the same passion for this field.
Our hope is that users of Finet will not only stop by to read some news, but will also be interested in sharing their opinion and experiences, the useful information they might have, and in general to be involved into the Network.
To enhance the distribution of specialised knowledge and skills Finet will organise workshops, and expertise can be exchanged in the forum.
The Finet project can be divided into three objectives:
INFORMATION A platform for sharing useful information, such as jobs/phds announcements, conferences and courses, etc.
NETWORK The development of a network of people, to meet, exchange opinions, etc. (for example, through regular paper discussions), and
KNOWLEDGE The promotion of occasions for production and distribution of knowledge such as workshops, seminars, and a forum.
To provide a complete picture of the recent situation in fisheries research, everybody is invited to transfer helpful and interesting news and knowledge.
Finet collects, concentrates, organises and shares this information on its webpage and provides a platform for lively communication and knowledge exchange between young fishery scientists.
