Blue Bioeconomy Public-Public Partnership
Aquatic biomass from the seas and oceans, rivers and lakes has a large potential to ensure future food and nutrition security and to supply raw materials for other high added value chains and products, such as bioenergy, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics while factoring in environment and climate change risks.
This partnership will aim to use this potential.
The MarTERA consortium, consisting of 16 collaborating countries, organised and co-funded together with the EU one joint call for transnational research projects on different thematic areas in 2017
