The Seaweed Platform community

Innovation promotes learning, especially from each other. That is why we started the Seaweed Platform community in 2014: a community for seaweed pioneers, engineers, entrepreneurs, fishermen, researchers, policy makers and many more. This is a place for sharing and developing new knowledge and to find inspiration. Together with more than 90 organisations, the Seaweed Platform focusses on professionalising the sector and accelerate innovation. Will you join the mission for a greener world with seaweed?

Seven reasons to join

1. Be part of a dynamic network

Every aspect of the seaweed value chain is represented in the community: from farmers to food developers. Here, they exchange knowledge, find inspiration and share insights. Members of the community have the opportunity to speak and collaborate with many different parties in the value chain. 

2. Inspirational workshops to accelerate the sector

Three times a year, we organize a workshop for all members in our community: the Seaweed Platform workshop. Here, we update each other on the latest trends and developments and work on dilemmas; it's a great network opportunity. 

3. Thematic Work groups to put dilemmas on the agenda

Professionalizing the sector can be complex, resulting in dilemmas that exceed the power of one organisation. These kind of cross-company dilemmas are addressed in our thematic workgroups in order to contribute to sector-wide solutions. Members of the community can join these groups. Read more about the work groups!

4. Find collaboration in various projects

Stichting Noordzeeboerderij is involved in various national and international projects. These projects incentivize (international) collaboration and cocreation. As a member, you have the opportunity to seek collaboration with the community for current or new projects. Here is an overview of the projects we are involved in
