Framework design of the Portuguese Roadmap for marine coproduct valorisation – lessons learned from Norway and Iceland (Roadmap4MarineCoproducts)
Bilateral Initiative Name | Framework design of the Portuguese Roadmap for marine coproduct valorisation – lessons learned from Norway and Iceland (Roadmap4MarineCoproducts)
Project code | FBR_OC2_17
Main objective | Roadmap4MarineCoproducts aims to address how many coproducts do blue bioeconomy activities, such as aquaculture, generate in Portugal and how can the country monetize them by creating business opportunities and implement circular economy models, based on Norway’s and Iceland’s experience – two countries that operate on the vanguard of marine coproduct valorisation.
The initiative gathers strategic partners and their know-how through cross-border collaboration such as the Norwegian Seafood Innovation Cluster (NCE Seafood Innovation) and the Iceland Ocean Cluster (IOC), and their associates, namely companies and other entities of their innovation ecosystems, and the Portuguese B2E CoLAB on a total of almost 200 entities.
Objectives, activities and expected/achieved results | The main outcomes will be key information and partnerships to develop a beta version of a Portuguese strategic roadmap, with recommendations for, among others, new business models, new value chains, new technologies and processes, and new intermediary businesses. The project involves will include visits and business knowledge exchange, and networking events with the participants’ institutions and innovation ecosystems.
Roadmap4MarineCoproducts is a Bilateral Initiative (BI) funded by the EEA Grants.
