The Seaweed Platform community

To innovate means to learn, especially from each other. That is why we started the Seaweed Platform community in 2014: an inclusive knowledge exchange community. This community forms the core for all our activities and projects. Our aim is to help our members from our community to stay up to date with recent developments and to participate in new projects and programs easily. We connect people from businesses, research institutes, policy and other organizations, to stimulate collaboration, strengthen the seaweed sector and accelerate innovation. Currently, over 90 organizations are adjoined!
