Are you a small to medium-sized enterprise (SME) working within the aquaculture supply chain, and located within the Highlands and Islands Enterprise area? Do you have an innovative new concept you want to commercialise? You could be eligible for match funding from the Accelerating Aquaculture Innovation (AAI) programme.

Made possible by £1m HIE investment, and supported by SAIC, the AAI programme aims to help more aquaculture SMEs to innovate and grow. Your innovation could be a process, product, service or technology, and its value can take different forms – financial, commercial, economic, social or public – but it must be measurable, and it must benefit the industry and the Scottish economy.
