Nordic Centre for Sustainable and Resilient Aquatic Production (SUREAQUA)

The consortium will establish a Nordic Centre of Excellence for Sustainable and Resilient Aquatic Production (SUREAQUA) to advance the bioeconomy transition in the Nordic region. The multidisciplinary centre will provide competence, innovation and technology to ensure sustainability and resilience in aquatic and associated land-based value chains.

The abundance and availability of aquatic raw materials provide the Nordic countries with unique opportunities for biomass production and refining. Aquatic resources must however be carefully managed to support sustainable future societies.

Innovative technology and biorefinery solutions, enhancing aquatic production, profitability and job creation, will be implemented in cooperation with private and public stakeholders. Opportunities for commercialization of new products, services and processes will be identified and barriers mitigated. Proposed technology developments and biorefinery approaches will be subjected to socio-economic and environmental assessments to ensure that these solutions are sustainable and add resilience.

SUREAQUA aims to make significant contributions to food and nutrient security, employment and efficient use of resources also in the context of forecasted global changes.
