The SUDEVAB project consortium is composed of representatives of the three groups of players the project brings together:.
- Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) engaged in abalone aquaculture
- Research and Technical Development institutions (RTDs) carrying the needed research effort forward
- Specialised sub-contractors supporting the research work using their existing facilities and specialised knowledge
Additionally, an Industrial Consultancy Group (ICG) complements the consortium. Its role is that of a discussion body interacting with project partners to develop ideas and concepts that are compatible for sustainable abalone aquaculture with products that meet the European market needs and providing dessemination links between SUDEVAB partners and the shellfish aquaculture sector in the EU.
