Marine biotech industry could grow by 12 percent per year
Date:12/14/2010

's growing demand for sustainable, healthy seafood.

The recently published Marine Board position paper "Marine Biotechnology: A New Vision and Strategy for Europe" provides a roadmap for European research in this field and sets out an ambitious but achievable science and policy agenda for the next decade. The Marine Board predicts that with the right actions taken now, Europe could be a world leader in the field of marine biotechnology by 2020. The actions needed are:

  • developing new research strategies and programmes for marine biotechnology, aligned across the national, regional and pan-European levels
  • improving the technology transfer pathways to strengthen collaboration between academic research and industry
  • securing a fair and equitable access to marine genetic resources to support European innovation in this growing area
  • creating a stronger identity and communicating to raise awareness of European marine biotechnology research

The Marine Board 2020 Vision for European Marine Biotechnology was presented to Maive Rute, European Commission DG Research Director of Biotechnologies, Agriculture and Food at the recent EurOCEAN 2010 conference in Ostend, Belgium. She commented: "The recent developments in the area of Marine Biotechnology promise to be very important for example for applications in the medical sector, by developing new drugs and diagnostic devices."
