The BlueBio ERANET COFUND and the BLUEMED Coordination and Support Action present the joint training course on blue biotechnologies!

The BLUEMED R&I initiative for Blue jobs and growth in the Mediterranean area (www.bluemed-initiative.eu) has identified “Explore the potential of Blue Biotechnologies” as one of the priority goals of its Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA). Among the actions identified to reach this goal will be to foster collaborative research through transdisciplinary fields of expertise […]

Kick-off meeting for the BlueBio Cofunded Projects

Last June a kick-off meeting for the cofunded projects of the first cofund call took place online. All 19 projects were presented on this online meeting. We have now published fact sheets for all these projects here. The first joint BlueBio call is supported by European 16 countries as well as the EU. All partner […]

BlueBio Call Announcement

The call is targeted on supply systems in the blue bioeconomy: logistics and transportation – from harvest to processing.  The scope of the call is to fund projects that facilitate the transfer (i.e. logistics, preservation and transportation) of bio-resources from harvest (catch or production) to processing to ensure e.g. traceability, quality, sustainability and the necessary quantity […]

SIDESTREAM – Secondary bio-production of low trophic organisms utilizing side streams from the Blue and Green sectors to produce novel feed ingredients for European aquaculture

Abstract To what extent is it possible to process and use nutrients from aquaculture and agriculture waste? Which novel organisms and approaches are best suited? Can these organisms serve as ingredients for feed stuff? How suitable and safe are feed ingredients produced on waste? What is the market potential and economic feasibility of feed ingredients […]

MedSpon – Characterization of new antibiotic principles against WHO priority pathogens of sustainable produced marine sponges for nutraceutical applications

Abstract Marine sponges are receiving increasing public, economic and scientific interest as source of bioactive compounds representing pharmaceutical potential. As sessile organisms sponges have developed chemical defence mechanisms to avoid the covering of algae, bacteria and infectious microorganisms. Regarding the development of new drugs, secondary metabolites are of special interest. Project objectives will address the […]

AquaHeal3D – 3D Printed Biomarine Wound Healing Accelerant

Abstract This project combines all renewable, marine sourced products to create a 3D printed wound healing medical device. We will incorporate Regenics’ bioactive substances from unfertilized salmon roe, HTX, into a topical wound healing dressing (class III medical device) for chronic hard-to-heal wounds. The components of the entire wound-healing device have a marine origin. The […]

AquaTech4Feed – Novel sustainable aquaculture technologies for the production of innovative feeds for improved fish stocks

Abstract The aim of AquaTech4Feed is to formulate novel fish feed from alternative proteinaceous biomass sources, such as algae, duckweed, insects and microbiomes (bioflocs) in order to improve fish production and product quality. AquaTech4Feed will develop a novel sustainable aquaculture production process based on the production of proteinaceous feed utilizing aquaculture wastewater and wastes. The […]

BESTBROOD – Identification of broodstock performance indicators and markers to boost the aquaculture of emerging fish species

Abstract Appropriate broodstock management is essential for supporting reproductive function and reliable and consistent production of gametes and high-quality eggs, critical for the rapid increase in juveniles supply and turn aquaculture into a profitable industry. In all species commercialized to date, this has been the first significant challenge to overcome and it is still so […]
