Honey+
New reasons to care honey from the Natural Park of Montesinho: A bioindicator of environmental quality & its therapeutic potential
 
Honey+ is one out of the 6 projects that were recommended for funding by FCT, under the call for SR&TD projects in Natural Park of Montesinho. Coordinated by Cristina Delerue Matos, the project was selected among 60 applications.
Honey+ seeks to enhance the regional economy by adding value to the honey from the Natural Park of Montesinho, through the exploration of new potentialities far beyond the honey's nutritional value.
The project aims to use honey as an indicator of environmental quality and as a product with antimicrobial properties, with promising applications for wound healing. Honey+ is a multi-institutional project, developed in collaboration with the Associação dos Apicultores do Parte Natural de Montesinho, the Universidad de Vigo, and the Universidade de Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro.

SEAFOODTOMORROW
is a new, €7m European Union Horizon 2020-funded project that aims to develop innovative sustainable solutions for improving the safety and dietary properties of seafood in Europe. Addressing the challenge to meet the growing market need for safe and sustainable seafood, the project will generate new knowledge to develop commercial solutions for improving the socio-economic and environmental sustainability of the European seafood production and processing industry.

The three-year SEAFOODTOMORROW project brings together 35 partners from across Europe with the most up-to-date technological development and market-oriented expertise to meet these challenges. The project was recently launched at the Instituto Português do Mar e da Atmosfera (IPMA) headquarters in Lisbon (Portugal), with all partners meeting for the kick-off event from 21-23 November 2017. Project co-ordinator, António Marques IPMA, said: "The SEAFOODTOMORROW kick-off meeting gathered the key players from all partner institutions for the first time. The intense discussions and unanimous decisions made at the meeting are clear evidence of the proactivity of the consortium. All partners are driven towards a common ambitious goal: ensuring the success of validated, eco-innovative, sustainable solutions that improve safety and dietary properties of seafood, to be developed in the project. Now it is time to move forward and keep this collaborative and proactive spirit alive."
