ATLANTICLAM lead by Oceano Fresco will bring Euro-native clam species from 'farm to fork'
The ATLANTICLAM project aims to bring Euro-native clam species from “farm to fork”, in an integrated, differentiated and consumer-oriented perspective, fostering the consumption of sustainable, healthy and tasty food, contributing to tackling climate change and providing a new income source for the blue economy.
It will be developed by Oceano Fresco (www.oceano-fresco.pt) and its partners INL – International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (www.inl.int), Faculty of Biotechnology of Universidade Católica Portuguesa (www.esb.ucp.pt), Nofima (www.nofima.com) and Maritech (https://maritech.com/).
This project has an investment of 1,394,411 EUR and is funded under the Blue Growth Program of the Financial Mechanism of the European Economic Area (EEA) 2014-2021. The EEA ( EEA Grants Portugal ) financial mechanism aims to reduce social and economic disparities in Europe and strengthen bilateral relations between Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway and the beneficiary countries.
We are working together for a green, competitive and inclusive Europe!
