The AWARE project aims to build first European RAS (Recirculation Aquaponic System) that uses reclaimed water with zero residues to produce fish and vegetables fit for human consumption. To establish a new business model for the economic exploitation of said value chain by lakeside, riverside, and urban communities. To provide a scientific evidence base to inform regulations while overcoming policy barriers for upscaling and commercialising this novel solution.

The INNOAQUA project aims to pave the path towards the upcoming sustainable and diversified EU in-land aquaculture industry by leaning on the demonstration and mainstreaming of innovative algae-based foods and solutions, and ecology, circularity and digitalization concepts.
