The Blue Cluster focuses on efficient and sustainable forms of fishing and aquaculture, and explores the potential of marine resources. Within that context, we conduct research into the cultivation of mussels, oysters and seaweed, among other things. We are also looking at the possibilities of constructing sea farms.

Projects in the spotlight


In progress
SeaChem focuses on the training of a new generatation of researchers involved in the production and valorisation of seaweed biomass. The project aims to increase support for this in the EU by tackling current problems in offshore seaweed cultivation.


In progress
Offshore wind farms provide us with large amounts of clean renewable energy, but also have a certain effect on the environment. The ANEMOI project studies possible chemical emissions from these wind farms (OWFs) and their impact on ecosystems and aquaculture.


In progress
LEVIATAD brings together 6 organisations from 4 countries to develop new tools and methods that can help SMEs expand their activities in the marine sector. The aim is to strengthen their market position via international support measures.
