The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has approved a project coordinated by Kiel University: "Bioeconomy at Marine Sites (BaMS)" with funding of up to 20 million Euro.
The focus of the BaMS project is on developing a new innovation area in northern Germany with 79 project partners from research, industry and public administration. New - and above all sustainable - concepts are being developed for a comprehensive circular economy, including fish, mussels and algae, among other things. The entire project will be funded by the BMBF.
The project leaders of the BMBF project "Bioeconomy at Marine Sites" are Professor Carsten Schulz from the Institute of Animal Breeding and Husbandry at the Faculty of Agricultural and Nutritional Sciences, and Professor Rüdiger Schulz from the Botanical Institute and Botanical Garden at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. The project coordinator is Dr Stefan Meyer from the CAU and network coordinator of the Competence Network Aquaculture (Kompetenznetzwerk Aquakultur, KNAQ).
