ULVA: TOMORROW’S “WHEAT OF THE SEA”, A MODEL FOR AN INNOVATIVE MARICULTURE
COST member states
COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a funding agency for research and innovation networks. Our Actions help connect research initiatives across Europe and enable scientists to grow their ideas by sharing them with their peers. This boosts their research, career and innovation. This website is based upon work from COST Action SEAWHEAT CA20106, supported by COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology).
The main aim of the COST Action is to make a step-change towards a green economy based on Ulva mass production and utilization within the European community and beyond. The ultimate goal is the development of Ulva-based blue-biotech industries and utilization of Ulva as a model organism in European algaculture. The Ulva COST Action will facilitate acquainting the traditional European diet and taste with Ulva, as a new, sustainable, and safe food item. The Action will profit from the world-renowned quality standard of European food production and from the nutritional value of Ulva toward using this alga in European human diet and animal nutrition.
