Algal biotechnology techniques and opportunities for the sustainable bioeconomy 2019

Where: Algal Innovation Centre (AIC), University of Cambridge, UK

When: December 12, 9 am - December 13, 5 pm

Attendees: Postgraduate, postdoctorate and SME and multinational industry R&D managers, researchers and entrepreneurs who want to be trained in algal biotechnology research and understand the opportunities available for its incorporation in the sustainable food bioeconomy.

Algae are aquatic and land plant-like organisms that can be used for a huge range of food products and sustainable food production pipelines. They are one of the most promising and emerging trends for the food industry.

EIT Food presents three short professional development courses that will assist you in finding out more about how these amazing and versatile organisms can help your research and business.

The aim of this professional development course is to provide introductory hands-on training and theory in algal biology, culturing, growth and subsequent molecular and metabolite analysis under laboratory and small to large scale growth facilities. It will also provide business information and networking opportunities.

There are two places remaining on the workshop, as well as limited travel grants. Please note that the application deadline is 30th September.
