From May 15 to 28, 2023, I completed an Erasmus+ internship at the secretariat of the European Aquaculture Society in Ostend (Belgium). During the internship, I learned more about the organization of the largest European aquaculture event, the Aquaculture Europe conference. The internship was mainly focused on getting involved in the overall organization of Aquaculture Europe, which will take place in Vienna on September 18–21, 2023, getting to know the roles of EAS staff, steering committee, program co-chairs and local organizing committee. I was involved in the compilation of the scientific program, industry-oriented events, social program and activities organized for students. Among other things, after completing the internship, I was appointed student coordinator for Aquaculture Europe 2023 and became part of the team responsible for preparing the Industry forum.
