H2020-SFS Open Innovation

CEVA decided to launch its own vision of Open Innovation through the analysis of the recent call : H2020 -SFS : Sustainable Food Security. The idea behind this is to stimulate contacts and discussions with the objective to foster project generation. In this document you will find results of our analysis where algae can bring added value and generic idea how to use them.

Below is a table with results of our analysis of H2020 - SFS call.  Topics where we see added value to consider algae, both micro and macro (seaweed) are listed. A short summary of main ideas is given.

By using this open innovation approach, our objectives are :

  • to partner with consortia addressing these calls, who would like to benefit of our 33 years expertize on algae projects
  • to stimulate new project building addressing these calls and aiming to integrate the algae dimension
  • to promote new project building on these topics but outside of these calls.

Please contact algues@ceva.fr  for any question or interest.

Deadline Call Type Topic

Legumes - transition paths to sustainable legume-based farming systems and agri-feed and food chains 

Algae can address two main issues in agri-feed and food chains :

  •  FAO scheduled shortage in food supply worldwide, partly because of animal feeding requirements.
  • Ecosystem europhication induced by non sustainable agricultural practices

Short nutrient cycles and nutrient loop closing, using algae biomass culture, can help to build long term solutions.
 It can provide local supply of vegetal protein for animal feeding, minimizing dependency to importations.

Promoting and supporting the eco-intensification of aquaculture production systems: inland (including fresh water), coastal zone, and offshore
Algae can address the issue of ecosystem eutrophication generated by animal aquaculture intensification.
New co-culture system combining algae and animal can help closing nutrient loop to become neutral for the ecosystem.
14/02/2016   SFS-34-2017 RIA
Innovative agri-food chains: unlocking the potential for competitiveness and sustainability 
Algae can address the issue of ecosystem eutrophication generated by agri-food chains. They can bring phytoepuration capacity for N, P nutrients in effluents while biomass brings proteins for animal feeding.
17/02/2016   SFS-41-2016 ERA-NET
EU-Africa Research and Innovation partnership on food and nutrition security and sustainable agriculture  
Algae have already proven their key role in nutrition issues through spirulina projects in the past. There is still a high potential for protein production from other algae, especially marine species able to grow without freshwater, a critical aspect in desert coastal areas. 
17/02/2016 SFS-24-2016 CSA
Reinforcing international cooperation on sustainable aquaculture production with countries from South-East Asia
Algae have historical usages in Asia. Development of their culture with modern methods can help local economy development in coastal area of Asia countries.
17/02/2016 SFS-25-2016 CSA
Support Action to a common agricultural and wider bioeconomy research agenda
Algae cultivation has the potential to integrate agri production and so to integrate agricultural world. There is a need to disseminate knowledge on their potential.
14/02/2016 SFS-30-2017 RIA
Closing loops at farm and regional levels to mitigate GHG emissions and environmental contamination - focus on carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus cycling in agro-ecosystems
Algae have a great productivity potential to capture N, P and CO2 generated by agricultural activities in actual farms. Transfer of C, N and P to this new algae vegetal biomass offers potential to close nutrient loops in animal feeding and fertilizing methods.

Innovative solutions for sustainable food packaging 

Algae already demonstrated their potential for material production used in packaging with two product categories :

  •  plastic : biodegradable, biosourced plastics
  •  paper type : cardboard, paper, various hydrophilic materials

Using algae biomass grown with phytoepuration on effluents, could bring sustainable path to product viable on economical point of view.

Promoting food and nutrition security and sustainable agriculture in Africa: the role of innovation 
Algae have already proven their key role in nutrition issues through spirulina projects in the past. There is still a high potential for protein production from other algae, especially marine species able to grow without freshwater, a critical aspect in desert coastal areas. 
14/02/2016 SFS-48-2017 IA
Resource-efficient urban agriculture for multiple benefits – contribution to the EU-China Urbanisation Partnership  
Algae cultures projects are already running to evaluate their potential integrated in urban environment. Beside microalgae based photoreactors, there is also room for gardening or agricultural types of algae/seaweed cultivation. Some are already practised at small scales.
