The Bundesverband Aquakultur e.V., based in Kiel, is an interest group of people based in Germany and active in the field of aquaculture. This group includes all persons and companies that provide preliminary services for aquaculture as well as produce, use or market products.
The term "aquaculture" in the sense of our statutes covers all water-based systems that serve the production of organisms in aquatic life forms.
The association is particularly committed to innovative, competitive products, sustainable production and successful marketing.
Its aim is to strengthen the importance of aquaculture in the public perception in order to improve the framework conditions for the entire industry. Through networking with existing national and international organisations, cooperation is to be promoted and synergies exploited.
The general objective of the European Algae Biomass Association (EABA) is to promote mutual interchange and cooperation in the field of algae biomass production and uses in all thinkable applications.
It aims at creating, developing and maintaining solidarity and links between its Members and at defending their interests at European and international level. Its main target is to act as a catalyst for fostering synergies among scientists, industrialists and decision makers in order to promote the development of research, technology and industrial capacities in the field of Algae.
The innovation space Bioeconomy at Marine Sites under the directory of Kiel University. In BaMS, innovative projects from the world of blue bioeconomy are processed. The project partners in BaMS are researching aquatic circular economies that include fish, mussels and algae in order to make a contribution to the sustainable use of our seas and waters. In BaMS, biorefineries are being developed that can extract nutrients from wastewater streams and northern German rivers. The aim is to relieve ecosystems and return valuable resources to the material cycle. Ecologically sensitive and sustainable aquacultures, as well as the connection of material and energy flows with agriculture, water management, renewable energies and climate protection, are decisively promoted.
NewFoodSystems is an innovation space of the program "Innovation Spaces Bioeconomy" of the "National Research Strategy Bioeconomy 2030" of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The basic idea of the Innovation Space is to bring together interested stakeholders from food and nutrition research and the food industry in order to jointly initiate bioeconomic innovations and to use research results more comprehensively than before. The Innovation Space is coordinated by the Max Rubner Institute (MRI) in collaboration with the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn. More than 60 partners from science, industry and society have already joined the transdisciplinary consortium.
NewFoodSystems acts as a continuous incubator for the exploration, development and evaluation of novel, high-quality and environmentally sound production systems for feed and food in open dialogue with society.
