The world needs a new business model capable of economic growth by decoupling raw materials from natural resources. Thus, the Blue Bioeconomy Pact embraced the challenge of reindustrializing Portuguese industries by integrating blue biotechnology solutions into value chains, enhancing the sustainable use of marine bioresources to increase added value through carbon-neutral innovation.
This Consortium will bring the Ocean to the shelves by investing in 7 Verticals – Biomaterials Applications [Vertical BIOMATERIAIS]; new paradigm for the production of bivalves [Vertical BIVALVES]; marine-based textiles [Vertical TÊXTIES]; sustainability in the food sector [Vertical ALIMENTAR]; scale-up of algae production [Vertical ALGAS]; circular solutions in feed [Vertical RAÇÕES]; bioinformatics for the Fisheries sector [Vertical PÍSCICULTURA] – and 3 comprehensive projects aimed at accelerating the development of the sector – the creation of a national network of biobanks, a digital platform for the valorization of marine co-products and the promotion of growth and internationalization of startups and SMEs.
