Marine animals, plants and microbes produce complex structures and chemicals beyond today’s most advanced engineering and manufacturing capabilities – these have the potential to generate clean energy, materials and chemicals. The ocean is also the primary source of nutrition for communities worldwide. 

Harnessing the remarkable capabilities of marine organisms and building better systems to capture the ocean’s potential, UQ researchers are partnering with industry, government and the community to create environmentally sustainable and economically viable bioeconomic and technological solutions.
