Subsidy Projects

To speed up the development of the seaweed industry Hortimare is and has been involved in many projects. By collaborating and focussing on the real challenges the seaweed industry has been able to develop. In the next ten years expectations are that the seaweed industry will develop much faster. This is thanks to the many project initiatives throughout the world.

These programs provide Hortimare with extra possibilities to enhance research results and explore the world of seaweed to deeper extents. Therefore we are very grateful for this opportunity given to us by formentioned organisations and would like to thank them greatly for their support and their trust in our organisation and commitment to our projects.
