The INNOAQUA Project kicked off

Innoaqua - Project Kickoff

The INNOAQUA project is one of the newly funded Horizon Europe projects within the Farm-to-Fork strategy, addressing innovative food production from marine and freshwater ecosystems.

INNOAQUA started on the 1st of June 2023 and officially kicked off on the 6th of June with the first consortium meeting, held online. A total of 17 partners from eight countries are involved in the project, led by NORCE Norwegian Research Centre.

The Farm-to-Fork Strategy of the European Green Deal acknowledges the potential of algae to become an important source of alternative low-carbon footprint protein and contribute to improving the sustainability and competitiveness of the aquaculture sector. Nonetheless, the European algae industry is still in an early phase lagging behind the overall increase seen at a global level, mostly driven by Asia.

Within this context, the EU Project INNOAQUA aims to pave the path towards the upcoming sustainable and diversified EU in-land aquaculture industry by demonstrating and mainstreaming innovative algae-based foods and solutions, based on ecology, circularity, and digitalization concepts.

With the support of 17 consortium partners:
