The MacroBiotech project has three strategic objectives (SO):
SO1) To develop and analyse seeding methods for the cultivation of selected macroalgae species.
SO2) To demonstrate the cultivation, harvesting and pre-treatment methods required for large scale (commercial) macroalgae cultivation in the open ocean.
SO3) To carry out an economic cost-benefit analysis and market research for the potential extracts/products derived from the macroalgae cultivation.
