Disruptive Technologies in the Arctic Seafood Sector

Increased innovation and transfer of new technology to SMEs in remote sparsely populated areas


DisruptAqua aims to evaluate which specific ICT technologies (specifically block chain, IoT, AI) are most suitable and applicable for Arctic seafood businesses by articulating the benefits and costs; and understanding the route to practical application. The project will develop the research already undertaken by partners to inform how new solutions could be used by businesses to add-value to their products and ensure sustainable production.
