Trainings and webinars

The trainings on the modules are aimed at shellfish farmers, but also at students, young entrepreneurs or aquaculture enthusiasts, because learning how to farm shellfish with a Formex® module is an affordable option to farm seafood yourself or to start a small farm.

IMPORTANT: due to the COVID-19 health emergency, its consequences on people’s mobility and the protective measures to stop the spread of the disease, the training initially planned by the OpenMode project will only be held online. Access is open and free of charge, please click on the following link:
