We announce with great pleasure our new project, Sea2See!
The Sea2See project is supported and co-funded by the European Commission through the Horizon Europe programme. The project has a budget of 5,449,190.75 EUR and brings together 14 partners from all over Europe. It started in July 2022 for 4 years until June 2026. The coordinator is Smartwater Planet, a provider of engineering and technology for the aquaculture sector.
Current seafood traceability tools and services have the potential to take advantage of novel blockchain technologies to obtain a wide range of data making sustainable seafood practices more visible to consumers.
Sea2See will fill in existing seafood traceability gaps through development of an innovative end-to-end blockchain model and professional and consumer applications to increase trust and social acceptance of sustainably fished and farmed seafood. The project will provide technological solutions to answer the need of a valuable source of data collected throughout the whole seafood value chain, verified and covering inputs from diverse stakeholders. For that purpose, a specific focus will be put on active commitment of stakeholders and real empowerment of consumers through the implementation of societal and sectoral strategies for co-creation, communication and awareness raising.
Europroject has led the successful setting-up of the project. We will be the project manager and the lead of the communication and dissemination work package.
