National Research Coalition Seaweed

In the past year, five TO2 institutes (ECN, Marin, Deltares, TNO and DLO (including Wageningen Marine Research)) collaborated on a chain for the North Sea seaweed.

This cooperation has brought together previously competing parties and has yielded enticing prospects regarding business cases for sustainable seaweed cultivation in the near future. We want continue and broaden this intensive cooperation as a follow up of the TO2 project. The goal of the project is to form a National Research Coalition for seaweed that draws up and launches a national research program.
