As coordinator, Sioen played a key role in the innovative, European ‘AT~SEA’-research project (2012-2015). Recently, a commercial spin-off of the project was launched. Sioen joined forces with European partners in a joint venture, called ‘AT~SEA Technologies’. Test seaweed turnkey farms are deployed in Norway and Ireland amongst others. Sioen develops the advanced technical textile, on which the seaweed is cultivated on a large scale.
