Malaysian aquaculture collaboration

P1030868A British government funded mission to Malaysia (October 20th-22nd 2013), organised by the Department of Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) identified a number of interesting opportunities for collaboration in aquaculture research and education. Five UK representatives with expertise in aquaculture related R&D and education, including Martyn Haines of Pisces LI, were hosted by Ching Heong Lee of the UK Science and Innovation Network.  The party met a number of lead institutions, including, the Agribiotechnology Institute Malaysia Headquarters, the Institute of Tropical Aquaculture, University Malaysia, Terrenganu and Nottingham University.

The final mission report identified an immediate interest in Scottish work experience for the Institute of Tropical Aquaculture’s Diploma students, particularly if  ‘credit bearing’. In addition, and partly driven by the considerable cachet UK qualifications carry in Malaysia, progression for Undergraduates to the Institute of Aquaculture Stirling Post Graduate Masters Degree was keenly sought. The opportunity to develop a more effective system for the delivery of work based learning and qualifications longer term, was also recognised, but requires more detailed discussion. Communication has been on-going since the mission with Degree level development opportunities taking priority in the short term.
