Seaweed sex, chemical defense mechanisms of the sugar kelp and how seaweeds may be integrated in sustainable value chains, were among the many subjects discussed during a PROMAC workshop entitled ‘Seaweeds for Dummies’ which took place on May 25 at Møreforsking Ålesund.

Following an initiative from PROMAC partners who are experts in economics and logistics, but know little about seaweeds as organisms and their potential uses, Møreforsking Ålesund researchers Annelise Chapman and Pierrick Stévant hosted the workshop, which was also attended by some of our industry partners.

“A useful, interesting and constructive day“, was the general verdict, and the event may be a model for a similar workshop with focus on value chains and logistics in the fall – or: ‘Dummy no more’!
