[2019-03-15] We are happy to announce the start of a new project that will develop genetic tools for ecosystem health assessments in the North Sea Region.

The project just kicked off in Ostend, Belgium with a budget of 2.5 M€, including prestigious marine institutes like the Naturalis Biodiveristy Center Leiden, the Flanders Institute for Marine Research, the Senckenberg Institute in Germany, and the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science in the UK (Cefas). The project will have a lifetime of 3 years and run a series of pilot studies to compare conventional ecosystem health assessments with new genetic approaches.

 More information will be soon available at the official project website: https://northsearegion.eu/geans/
