After being awarded a €9 million Horizon Europe grant in June, the Ocean Rainforest-led consortium gathered its 25 partners for the kick-off of this major project for the European seaweed industry last week.

The project, named SeaMark intends to exploit the full spectrum of products derived from seaweeds on an unprecedented scale — from medicine to cosmetics, human food, and animal feed.

For Algaia, Benoit Queguineur and Franck Hennequart participated to the meeting hosted by the coordinator team on the Feroe Islands.

Looking forward to an exciting new era in Europe and beyond for the development of novel products from sustainably cultivated brown and green seaweed.

In Seaweed we trust!
