Algal biotechnology techniques and opportunities for the sustainable bioeconomy

Algae are microscopically small plants that can be used as raw materials for a variety of foods and sustainable food production. Their use is one of the most promising and emerging trends in the food industry.

Against this background, Fraunhofer IGB invites you to a two-day advanced training course on "Algal biotechnology and its potential for a sustainable bioeconomy". Interested parties can learn more about how these amazing and versatile organisms can help their research and their companies.

The aim of this training course is to provide a practical introduction to algae biology, cultivation, growth and subsequent molecular and metabolite analysis under laboratory conditions and in small to large breeding and extraction facilities.

The program addresses decision-makers from industry and other business representatives as well as researchers, especially postgraduates and postdoctoral students. The course offers them the opportunity to further their education in algae biotechnology research and to understand its potential within the framework of a sustainable food bioeconomy.
