Blog 3: Five exciting innovations in the world of microalgae and seaweed


The IATiP have been busily collecting knowledge, technology, and innovation of potential interest to the Irish aquaculture sector over the past year. You can learn more about the whole idea here in our first blog post (“What is Knowledge Transfer and how will it bring value to the Irish Aquaculture community?”). Very simply, we began by interviewing Irish researchers, and then expanded our reach to researchers and companies from across Europe, to identify commercially-relevant knowledge (including technology and innovations) that could be of value and support to the Irish aquaculture community.

An extensive amount of research is taking place within the microalgae and seaweed space, and so we would like to share with you a selection of the technologies, projects, and research findings that we came across during our knowledge collection exercise*.

What is in it for you?

Together, we share an interest in progressing the aquaculture sector in Ireland. We believe that by sharing knowledge and technologies such as the ones described, it will provide you with an understanding of the state-of-the-science, and in a best case scenario, provide you with a solution to contribute towards more sustainable production. Please feel free to contact us and we can put you in touch with the people behind the innovations, and we hope to see collaborations and the industry grow as a result.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the researchers and companies who spoke to us about their work.

Do you have knowledge to share?  Are you looking for a solution to help your business?

If you have commercially relevant research that you would like to share with us, or if you are looking for a solution for a particular challenge or need that you are experiencing within the sector, we would love to hear from you.  For all enquiries, please contact Intrigo Senior Project Manager, Georgia Bayliss-Brown, by email (georgia@intrigo.eu).
