BlueBioTECH Project implemented in the framework of Interreg Baltic Sea Region Seed Money Program

„Rozwój i transfer technologii dla błękitnej bioekonomii w regionie Morza Bałtyckiego BlueBioTECH” (BlueBioTECH, development and transfer of technology for the blue bioeconomy of the Baltic Sea Region) project implemented by the Faculty of Oceanography and Geography of the University of Gdańsk received funding from the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Program. BlueBioTECH is the response for the need of improved solutions in manufacturing, harvesting, processing techniques and mainly scaling up the cultivation of micro and macroalgae, bivalves, fish and shrimps.

BlueBioTECH implemented by the University of Gdańsk in a partnership with Klaipeda Science and Technology Park, Coastal Research and Planning Institute, SUBMARINER Network for Blue Growth EEIG, University of Tartu, Royal Institute of Technology, University of Kiel and Aarhus University aims to identify main trends, technological and innovative needs of blue biotechnology sector and aquaculture in the broad sense, focused on the specific needs of Baltic Sea Region.

The project lays the foundation for the larger, target undertaking to develop blue technologies and manage sea resources based on circular economy rules. The idea comes out of the University of Gdańsk partnership in the following projects: InnoAquaTech and BluePlatform – focused on the development and transfer of technology and AquaVIP – within its framework new practical and on-line courses are developed.

The project fosters the development of technologies and efficient knowledge transfer between suppliers and users. Another benefit of the project is the development of the University of Gdańsk cooperation with the international partners – both research facilities and enterprises.
