The three-year SEAFOODTOMORROW (Innovative Solutions for Nutritious, Safe and Sustainable Seafood in Europe) project brings together 35 partners from across Europe with the most up-to-date technological development and market-oriented expertise to meet these challenges. The project was recently launched at the Instituto Português do Mar e da Atmosfera (IPMA) headquarters in Lisbon (Portugal), with all partners meeting for the kick-off event from 21-23 November 2017. Project co-ordinator, António Marques IPMA, said: "The SEAFOODTOMORROW kick-off meeting gathered the key players from all partner institutions for the first time. The intense discussions and unanimous decisions made at the meeting are clear evidence of the proactivity of the consortium. All partners are driven towards a common ambitious goal: ensuring the success of validated, eco-innovative, sustainable solutions that improve safety and dietary properties of seafood, to be developed in the project. Now it is time to move forward and keep this collaborative and proactive spirit alive." With a strong focus on innovation, SEAFOODTOMORROW works directly with recognised industry experts and innovation institutions with proven track records. The project has put knowledge management structures in place that ensure the project’s innovative solutions will be transferred to relevant end users in the seafood production and processing sectors. Using this comprehensive approach, SEAFOODTOMORROW offers a strong and transdisciplinary partnership that is addressing food security challenges by finding innovative solutions for seafood and associated environmental issues.
