A highly qualified interdisciplinary consortium has been assembled to meet the objectives for SFI Dsolve

The consortium represents different disciplines and consists of a leading Norwegian university, research institutions, fishing and aquaculture companies, gear suppliers, industrial organizations, public management authorities, and NGOs. The SFI will be supported by key R&D institutions from the EU and a leading global polymer producer from South Korea. This international support will help maximize dissemination and exploitation of the project results and expand the market potential for new innovations.
