Elements with tag markets
This week, the Council adopted a regulation setting autonomous EU tariff quotas (ATQs) for certain fishery products for the years 2019 and 2020. The ATQ regulation covers species such as tuna, Alaska pollack, cod or flatfish for which a relatively high volume can be imported from non-EU countries at a reduced or zero-duty tariff. Up to 750.000 tonnes of fish will benefit from this scheme and will enter the European markets regardless of their origin, way of production, sustainability of the stock, labour standards or even if the third country has been identified by the EU for illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing. Europêche believes that, in many cases, ATQs serve the sole purpose of getting a better price from non-EU producers, while putting pressure on EU producers’ prices and employment.
the second edition of the prestigious Food & Health Entrepreneurship Program will take place on the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona campus form the 13th to 17th of October, 2014.
The workshop is open to last year undergraduate students, Master's and PhD students, post-doctoral and academic researchers working on issues related to food, nutrition and health.
The one week FHEP, based on the methodology developed by the University of California Davis is designed for those who want to explore the potential of their idea / technology in the context of the market, prepare for a career in the industry or take the first steps towards lunching a new venture.
During five days, participants will work on their project through seminars, practical exercises and mentoring sessions to finally answer questions like for example. :
-How to evaluate my project from the market point of view?
-How to protect my research with a patent?
-How to efficiently communicate the potential of my research to the food sector?
The Program Faculty is composed of speakers and mentors like industry executives, investors and entrepreneurs and will be led by Pegram Harrison, professor of entrepreneurship in the Saïd Business School at Oxford University. The event food company sponsor is Pepsico.
