CIIMAR is one of the partners of the SEAFOODTOMORROW project coordinated by Instituto Português do Mar e da Atmosfera (IPMA), Portugal.
SEAFOODTOMORROW is a new, €7m European Union Horizon 2020-funded project that aims to develop innovative sustainable solutions for improving the safety and dietary properties of seafood in Europe. Addressing the challenge to meet the growing market need for safe and sustainable seafood, the project will generate new knowledge to develop commercial solutions for improving the socio-economic and environmental sustainability of the European seafood production and processing industry.
The three-year SEAFOODTOMORROW project brings together 35 partners from across Europe with the most up-to-date technological development and market-oriented expertise to meet these challenges.
With a strong focus on innovation, SEAFOODTOMORROW works directly with recognised industry experts and innovation institutions with proven track records. The project has put knowledge management structures in place that ensure the project’s innovative solutions will be transferred to relevant end users in the seafood production and processing sectors. Using this comprehensive approach, SEAFOODTOMORROW offers a strong and transdisciplinary partnership that is addressing food security challenges by finding innovative solutions for seafood and associated environmental issues. The kick-off meeting was an overall success, with the partnership keen to build on the firm foundations set in Lisbon.
The project was recently launched at the Instituto Português do Mar e da Atmosfera (IPMA) headquarters in Lisbon (Portugal), with all partners meeting for the kick-off event. CIIMAR was represented by Luisa Valente.
