On May 10-12, 2017, the University of Cantabria, as partner of the SUCCESS project and leader of the WP4, organized a workshop on "Price transmission and market power in the seafood value chain in Europe", in collaboration with the WP9 leader (MarkMar) and the project coordinator (UBO), to present the results of the analyses conducted in the context of the “Task 4.2: Analysis of price transmission and market power”.
The workshop gathered 32 agents and stakeholders from 12 countries (Spain, France, UK, Finland, Greece, Italy, Poland, Iceland, Netherlands, Portugal, USA, and Australia) involved in the seafood value chain
A World Café session was also organized in which all the participants actively participated in the discussion of several themes related with the seafood value chains in the EU. The aim was that each participant provide its expertise (related with a species, a market, a step in the chain, policies, trade, etc.) to the discussion. The results of this activity will be an input to task 4.2 that will help to improve the understanding of the empirical outputs and the quality and impact of the final results presented in the D4.4.
