TASCMAR is a collaborative research project funded under the EU Horizon 2020 programme and aspires to develop new tools and strategies to overcome existing bottlenecks in the discovery and application of marine-derived biomolecules, with a focus on the theme of anti-ageing.

From exploring the possibility for new medical drugs without harmful side effects, nutraceuticals (e.g. dietary supplements) and cosmetic products to developing technologies for bioremediation, TASCMAR investigates the potential of the underutilized mesophotic zone of the ocean (between 30 and 100 meters depth) and develops innovative approaches for the cultivation and extraction of marine invertebrates and symbionts from lab to pilot-scale.

TASCMAR is part of the EU Blue Growth Strategy, aiming to unlock the potential of seas, oceans and coasts for sustainable growth. The project will be closely monitored for its socio-economic and environmental impacts so as to ensure sustainability while promoting economic growth.
eu-flagTASCMAR is a collaborative European research project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, under grant agreement N° 634674.
