Enter now for innovation award
NOMINATIONS are now open for the sought after Aqua Nor innovation award, the winner of which will be announced at this year’s exhibition in Trondheim in August.
Companies or individuals from all over the world that supply equipment or services to the aquaculture industry, or are in the aquaculture industry, are invited to apply for the award.
In 2017, the last time the awards were staged, Dundee based Ace Aquactec beat off stiff Norwegian competition to win the NOK 100,000 (about £9,000). Ace’s Nathan Pyne-Carter, who picked up the award for his humane slaughter electric stunner, said the prize would raise the company’s profile. He has since gone on to open offices around the world, and last year won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the innovation category.
The deadline for applying for the innovation award is May 1, and the winner will be revealed on August 20, at the opening of Aqua Nor 2019.
