COST and EUREKA joined forces in June 2007, combining a COST Strategic Workshop with a EUREKA project brokerage event within the area of aquaculture. Recognising the success of this event, the Municipality of the Dutch City of Enkhuizen and the Province of Northern Holland decided to organise a second COST/EUREKA Twin Event, in an approach best characterised as “Business meets Science”.

The main issue was establishing international collaborative projects to be triggered by pilot projects set up under the EUREKA Umbrella Project "Innofisk". Pilot Projects were defined in three areas: Specific novel fish species, Sustainability and installations and Feed and Health, all recommended by the COST Preparatory Committee on Aquaculture. The Enkhuizen Twin Event lasted for two days with an opening address from Gerda Verburg, Dutch Minister for Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality and closing remarks from Joe Borg, EU Commissioner for Fisheries and Maritime Affairs.
