Decoding the
ocean’s potential

Bluetools is a 4-years EU funded project which will unravel the potential of marine microbiomes for healthier oceans and the blue bioeconomy.

Approach plurality

Bluetools will integrate different fields to develop cutting-edge tools that support fast, efficient, and sustainable exploitation of microbiomes.

Research to market

With a research-to-market process, Bluetools hopes to develop new products while working towards the circular blue economy and healthier marine environments.
