AquaTT is an SME, with a not-for-profit mandate. It was founded in 1992 under the EU COMETT programme as the University Enterprise Training Partnership (UETP) for the European aquaculture industry, to coordinate the training requirements of the industry through a single body.

Over the past 26 years AquaTT has grown beyond its original remit to become a leader in scientific knowledge transfer and dissemination. We partner with research consortia to design projects that make a difference. We devise best practice work packages related to dissemination, communication and knowledge transfer. Traditionally we have worked with the marine and aquaculture research sectors, but recently we have become involved in projects in the areas of environment, health, food and sustainable development.
