A future bioeconomy centre led by IRIS?

16.07.2016

IRIS is leading a transdisciplinary consortia, which has been invited as one out of ten consortia to the final phase in the NordForsk call to establish a “Nordic Centre of Excellence".

The centre is within the theme “Advancing the Bioeconomy Transition in the Nordic Region”.

The proposed “Nordic Centre for Sustainable and Resilient Aquatic Production” (SUREAQUA) will provide competence, innovation and technology to ensure the sustainability and resilience in aquatic production chains, so valuable for human society. The main goal of SUREAQUA is to advance the transition to the blue bioeconomy, providing food security to society while preserving the good environmental status of seas and oceans in the Nordic region.
 
The research partners are IRIS (all departments), Technical University of Denmark, Nofima, Norwegian University of Life Sciences, University of Stavanger, University of Iceland, University of Eastern Finland, University of Gothenburg, Aquaculture research Station of the Faroes and European Centre of Environment and Human Health.
 
Science, Technology and Innovation Board: AKVAGroup ASA, Skretting ARC, AM Nutrition, Marine Harvest, Gwind, SFD Innovation, Rorum ehf, Biosentrum AS, Bakkafrost, and Mediteam AS.

Contact person for IRIS is Fiona Provan.
