The Bio4safe project aims to reduce the consumption of water and fertiliser in horticulture by using bio-stimulants and applying innovative tools. This combination could result in up to 20% reduction in the use of water and 10% of fertilisers.
Each partner set up bio-stimulant trials in combination with innovative plant sensors and engaged a network of local stakeholders interested in testing bio-stimulants at their own institutes.
The SUMARIS project aims to develop and implement a fishery management strategy specifically for rays and skates in the 2 Seas area. By collecting up-to-date evidence, this allows stakeholders across the four countries to monitor and manage the stocks of these species with more economic efficiency.
In coordination with local experts, the partnership has produced a cross-border atlas of the distribution of skates and rays, a common code of conduct for the consortium, and a training package for fishermen about the correct identification and handling of rays.
