Algae Biotechnology

Techniques and opportunities for the sustainable bioeconomy

The online algae course on the EIT Food Network will be held for a second time this year.


This online professional development course aims to provide introductory training and theory in algal biology, culturing, growth and biotechnology under laboratory and small-scale pilot facilities.  The workshop will run for three days hosted virtually by the University of Cambridge Algal Innovation Centre (AIC) (UK), Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS), Fraunhofer Institute for Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology IGB (Germany) and Matis (Iceland).


Advantages and program

The course will also offer insights and examples from an industrial and entrepreneurial perspective, that can help the participants to found or improve their own algal-based business.

Learners will receive an optional workshop pack in the post that contains products, flyers, and information related to the algal industry. The programme will provide an unrivaled opportunity for postgraduate, postdoctorate and industry researchers to be trained in algal biotechnology research and to network with others in the sector in our breakout and networking sessions. Please note that the course will not be recorded.
