Description of the research programme of the CML
China's booming aquaculture industry relies increasingly on fishmeal made from wild-caught fish. This practice depletes wild fish stocks and strains fragile ocean ecosystems, but a new study by Stanford University, Leiden University, University of Wollongong, The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, Stockholm University and Shanghai Ocean University, offers a more sustainable path. This research is published in Science at January 9, 2015.
The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) has awarded major grants to two consortia that Leiden University and Leiden University Medical Center are part of. The money is intended for use in innovative research on health and sustainable raw materials.
Environmental and sustainability research in the Netherlands is internationally considered to be of very high quality. More than 25% of the Dutch research groups under review belong to the world top of their field of research. The Dutch institutes are very positively assessed by the international reviewers and are strongly praised for their inclination to interdisciplinary cooperation and the societal relevance of the scientific research.
