Economics Education & academia +2 more

UK - Seafish, the authority on seafood, has announced that its Industry Project Fund (SIPF), worth up to 1 million, is once again open for new applications from those with innovative ideas benefitting the seafood industry.

Dr Paul Williams, Seafish Chief Executive, said: "We're delighted to announce another round of SIPF funding, which is one of Seafish's key ways of supporting improvement in the industry."

"Now in its seventh year, the fund has seen considerable success with continued growth, and so far has supported more than 80 projects, providing a wide range of benefits to the seafood sector."

"For this round of funding, Seafish is particularly interested in grant applications that cover communication activities aimed at consumers, or on building an improved understanding of seafood. However, work aligned with the strategic themes identified by industry as crucial to improving safety, raising standards and improving efficiency, will be eligible."

Applications will be assessed on a value-for-money basis and must show measurable benefit to the seafood industry. Applications that provide the greatest value to the widest industry audience will score most highly.

The application period opened on 7 September 2011 and closes at midnight on 9 October 2011. Successful applicants will receive funding starting from April 2012.
