GRASS project conference – registration open
Macroalgae harvesting and cultivation: opportunities and challenges.
Macroalgae are game-changing as starting material in producing food, consumables such as plastics and energy without competing for arable land, depleting fresh water and using non-renewable fertiliser. However, the sector is still in its infancy in the Baltic Sea Region and there is a lack of in-depth and wide-spread knowledge on the potential benefits of macroalgae production. The GRASS conference will gather knowledge relevant for the Baltic Sea Region to raise awareness, also among public authorities, on the arising macroalgae benefits and opportunities and pave the way for innovation and product development. The conference will cover the triple helix of innovation (industry, academia and government) within macroalgae production and use, including beach-wrack.
