Promoting Multi-Stakeholder Contributions to International Cooperation on Sustainable Solutions for Aquaculture Development in South-East Asia — EURASTIP, is a three-year Coordination and Support Action, funded through the EU Horizon 2020 programme, and developed in response to the EU call “reinforcing international cooperation on sustainable aquaculture production with countries from South East Asia” (H2020 SFS-24-2016). EURASTiP will provide a structured basis for multi-stakeholder dialogue in the aquaculture community, within South East Asia and between South East Asia and the EU.

To maximise collaboration and strategic partnerships, EURASTiP will implement ‘FUNDED‘ Exchange Programmes between Europe and SE Asia in the field of sustainable aquaculture for three different types of stakeholders: educators, researchers and industry stakeholders. The overall aim of each of the three Exchange Programmes is to develop strategic partnerships, increase collaboration and learn from each other.

EURASTIP engages in an equal opportunities and diversity policy and encourages everyone to apply regardless of race, age and gender.

List of eligible countries

Researcher capacity building

The research capacity building exchanges focus on sharing knowledge and research experience between European & SE Asia. Not only research institutes and universities are welcome to apply, also the aquaculture industry is encouraged to take part in these research capacity exchanges as leading applicant and/or as a host.

Industry Internships

The industry internships focus on the facilitation of new business opportunities & industrial partnerships between European & SE Asian companies.


The educators capacity building exchange programme focuses on knowledge exchange and training provision to build strategic partnerships between European and SE Asian educator institutes for future bilateral cooperation. Each of these exchanges must propose a novel dimension to be piloted (e.g. innovative teaching method, new material, collaborative approach) to ensure an innovation aspect. Each exchange will be required to contribute to a blog/Vlog during the exchange so that other actors can follow progress and engage a wider audience.
