News | 27 November 2021 New research project | Blue Forest

🌱 Discover BLUE FORESTS, a brand-new project to support seaforestation to foster sustainable blue economy activities based on macroalgae. A key activity of BLUE FORESTS will be centred on quantification of the economic value of the ecosystem services delivered by macroalgae habitats. From the conservancy viewpoint, this project will also be focused on the reversal of the loss of marine forests. 

🌊 The project is funded by the EEA Grants Portugal and is led by the Centre of Marine Sciences (CCMAR). The Nova SBE Environmental Economics Knowledge Center, together with our Associates Polytechnic of Leiria and WavEC - Offshore Renewables, as well as various other organisations working on different fields of marine research and innovation, is part of the consortium.
