• Mission: 

    Ocean4Biotech project was established from the need of exploiting marine bio-resources by the field of marine biotechnology, which supports the exploitation of the Blue Growth and Bioeconomy strategies in Europe. 

    The objectives of this project can be summarised as follows:

    • to bring together experts in the marine biotechnology field;
    • to provide a platform for sharing experience, knowledge, and technologies;
    • design a roadmap for a more efficient and speedy development of marine biotechnology research in Europe and beyond


  • Collaboration with Blue-Cloud: 

    The cooperation between Ocean4Biotech and Blue-Cloud is mainly based on Data Discovery and Access Service through the incorporation of the Ocean4Biotech research results into the Blue-Cloud database. The data provided by Ocean4Biotech will be exploited to increase the quality of data for Biodiversity, Aquaculture and Genomics demonstrators.

    In addition, the cooperation between the two projects is going to be enhanced thanks to the organisation of joint workshops which aim at better spreading the project targets.

  • Expected Impact: 

    Ocean4Biotech has gathered a lot of data which can be included in the Blue-Cloud database. The data will be included to populate the Biodiversity, Aquaculture and potentially Genomics demonstrators.
