The NordAqua NCoE brings internationally recognized Nordic senior scientists and younger PIs together with experts in industrial biorefinery fields in order to generate a multidisciplinary platform for rapid transition to sustainable blue bioeconomy. The NordAqua consortium is a Nordic center of excellence (NCoE) project in the Nordic Bioeconomy Programme of NordForsk (2017-2021). The NordAqua NCoE brings internationally recognized Nordic senior scientists and younger PIs together with experts in industrial biorefinery fields in order to generate a multidisciplinary platform for rapid transition to sustainable blue bioeconomy. NordAqua 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 project is managed by Academy professor Eva-Mari Aro (University of Turku) and has 10 partners from Nordic countries. P.Is from the University of Helsinki are Prof. Kaarina Sivonen and Dos. David Fewer.
