How it all began
From study to research
The idea for the SEAWATER Cube was born during our many years of research work as a scientific employee in the aquaculture laboratory at htw saar. In a multitude of projects we have acquired comprehensive knowledge about the breeding of fish in general and about highly technical, closed recirculation systems in particular. The experience we gained showed us how a fish farm has to be designed in order to be stable, efficient and therefore economical. Over time, the desire arose to set up our own company and build small, standardised fish farms that were one step ahead of other suppliers through intensive research.
Exist transfer of research
Exist Research Transfer is a programme of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy and the European Social Fund which promotes particularly innovative and risky product ideas with high potential, but at the same time still high research demand. Funding is aimed at research teams from universities and non-university research institutions and covers the financing of a maximum of four staff positions and material expenses. The programme is divided into two phases: The aim of the first phase is development work to demonstrate technical feasibility, the development of a prototype, a functioning business model and finally the establishment of a technology start-up. In the second phase, further development work, measures to commence business activities and the creation of the conditions for external company financing will be supported.
