In its Farm to Fork strategy, the European Union emphasizes that sustainable fisheries and aquaculture contribute directly to environment‑friendly, inclusive, safe and healthy food production by providing highly nutritional proteins, lipids and micronutrients for a healthy diet, and thus is important for reaching objectives set out in the European Green Deal.
Sustainable and resilient aquaculture systems, including the use of low trophic species, high animal welfare standards and alternative sources of protein for food and feed, will increase seafood production and reduce its environmental impact while adding economic value to the chain, and Horizon Europe is an important tool to achieve these goals.
Join us in this webinar to learn about selected topics presented by the Research Council of Norway, and discuss possible project opportunities within fish welfare, new and innovative food from marine ecosystems and the potential of algae and the blue bioeconomy.
