An Horizon 2020 project


GHaNA is funded by European Union research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 734708 / GHANA / H2020-MSCA-RISE-2016 and co-led by Le Mans Université, France and Cardiff University (UK).

It gathers 22 partners from 13 countries who collaborate to determine biological and chemical diversity of Haslea diatoms using biological, physiological and genomic approaches and, in the long run, to developp mass-scale production for viable industrial applications by maximising biomass production and associated high-value compound production.

The project will increase our functional knowledge about this original bioresource, with regard to global change, species competition, bio-optics and fitness.
