Over half of this year's fellows are currently doing a specialisation training in the Northern region, in Akureyri and Sauðárkrókur, and therefore had to travel quite a long distance to get to the workshop.

As this year's Six Month Training Programme approaches mid-term, fellows recently gathered at MFRI headquarters in Hafnarfjörður to attend a two day workshop on final project proposal.

Over half of them are currently doing a specialisation training in the Northern region, in Akureyri and Sauðárkrókur, and therefore had to travel quite a long distance to get there.

When their proposals have been accepted the fellows have twelve weeks to carry out and complete their final project research.

During that time they will have to combine the experience and practical skills gained in the prior introductory and specialist phases of the programme.

Project design skills are applied to develop and present a research proposal, and then research is conducted individually through close collaboration with an expert supervisor.

Final projects most often involve data obtained directly from fellows' home countries and address challenges their fisheries are facing.

On completion, a research paper is submitted and published on the FTP website.

In addition, fellows are required to design an information poster summarising their research and present their results in an open dissemination meeting.

The photos below are from get-together celebrations held during the workshop.
