In 2019, the EXPOSED Aquaculture Operations research centre had a successful midway evaluation and is now planning for the final centre period with increased focus on turning knowledge into innovations.

Several demonstrator projects were initiated in 2019, with the goal of exploring the potential of several technologies in exposed aquaculture operations, such as decision support systems and the use of robotic arms to compensate for the relative motions of vessels and cages.

The first PhD candidates have now successfully defended their thesis. They will become a valuable contribution to industrial and academic future work for the aquaculture industry.
