On Thursday 09 June 5.00pm, we will be holding our monthly casual French Lab meeting referred to as the ‘AfterLab’ with Richard Le Boucher, Research Director of Precision Aquaculture Department in Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory. This AfterLab will be a hybrid event. Therefore participants are welcome to choose between in-person or digital tickets.
Dr Richard Le Boucher is the Research Director of Precision Aquaculture Department in Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory where he conducts research on Nutrition, Genetics, Production Systems and Farming Economics. He is the Director of Commercial Strategy Aquaculture Department which collaborates with farmers, start-ups and investors.
Before joining Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory in March 2020, Dr Le Boucher spent 15 years leading R&D aquaculture projects (Chile, Norway, France, USA, Thailand, China), developing and marketing innovative products related to nutrition, farm automation, genetics and reproduction. He obtained his Ph.D. in Genetics and Nutrition from AgroParisTech, an MBA from École des Ponts ParisTech and an Agronome Engineer’s Degree in Aquaculture from ENSAR. After creating the start-up Genotop in 2013, Richard became Disruptive Innovation Manager in the IMV Technologies Group in 2014 and director of Marketing company Aquattaq in 2019. A food lover, Dr Le Boucher dedicated his career to transfer ideas into viable businesses, implementing research and training programs in more than 60 aquaculture farms in 25 countries.
To find out what Richard will be covering during her AfterLab, please take a look at her abstract below:
“Current Challenges in Aquaculture: How to Innovate with Impact? ”
As a major source of food production, the aquaculture industry requires innovations that can be rapidly used by farmers. These new solutions must be compatible with the rapid human population growth, the global resources depletion and the socio-economic sustainability of farms. Finally, biological specific features of animals used in aquaculture form another level of constraints in the innovation process. Exploring examples in nutrition, genetics or reproduction, this talk is a overview of this complex equation.
