AquaTT UETP Limited (AquaTT)
- Last Updated: 17 September 2014
AquaTT is an SME specialising in scientific knowledge transfer and management activities. Founded in 1992 under the EU COMETT programme as a University Enterprise Training Partnership (UETP) to help bridge the gap between science and industry, AquaTT has now more than 20 years of experience in European Commission-financed projects. AquaTT works in scientific fields related to Marine, Food, Energy, Health and Environment which are key sectors for Europe’s sustainability. While AquaTT has a customised role in each project and consortium, it is generally responsible for end-user focused activities, dissemination, communication, and technology transfer. AquaTT services often extend into the areas of project management, event planning, stakeholder consultation, impact assessment, and piloting evaluation methodologies. In parallel to our work supporting research, AquaTT has a long track record in the field of education and training, informing strategies, and creating networks to exchange best practice. AquaTT works alongside Europe’s top researchers to help tackle major societal challenges by ensuring the new knowledge generated from EU research is effectively transferred resulting in uptake and measurable impact.
