Goals

The NordAqua NCoE makes use of aquatic photosynthetic organisms in production of biobased chemicals, pharmaceuticals, biofuels, food and feed, as well as in the process of wastewater purification.The NordAqua NCoE will merge the resources of unique collections of aquatic photosynthetic microorganisms maintained in Finland, Sweden and Norway. High-throughput screening of the new collection will allow the identification and subsequent mass production of novel fine chemicals.

Outputs

The NordAqua NCoE promotes the commercial exploitation of algae by creating new expertise and by generating a multidisciplinary platform of internationally recognized Nordic scientists and experts in industrial biorefinery fields.
