MARINNONET is a joint effort involving key players dedicated to Research, Development, and Innovation in Marine Biotechnology. The goal is to work together and make the most of their different skills and abilities to benefit the blue innovation ecosystems in the Atlantic Area. This way, they can stay competitive in the European and global Blue Economy and use marine resources sustainably, helping to deal with climate change.


The new cooperation network partners will create will help boost innovation in the Blue Biotech sector in the Atlantic Area. They plan to do this by setting up conditions that encourage lots of different people to get involved in coming up with new ideas. This network will also focus on R&D&I activities that are driven by what the market needs, involving both the people coming up with innovations and those helping make it happen. They'll showcase different examples of how Blue Biotech can bring about new and impactful innovations through pilot projects and other activities.
