Professional course in algal biotechnology at the University of Cambridge in Algal Biotechnology Techniques and opportunities for the sustainable bio economy

27th – 28th September, University of Cambridge

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.

The programme will provide an opportunity for industry R&D managers, researchers and entrepreneurs to be trained in algal biotechnology research and to understand the opportunities available for its incorporation in the sustainable food bioeconomy.

The workshop will initially run for two days at the University of Cambridge Algal Innovation Centre (AIC) (27th-28th September 2018). Similar courses will then be run at Matís (Iceland) in October and Fraunhofer (Germany) in November. Alongside core content on algal physiology, taxonomy, products and regulation, each location will specialize in one core theme (Cambridge – Algal Physiology and Omics; Matís – Algal Biotechnology and Investment Opportunities; Fraunhofer – Algal Production, Harvesting, Processing and Nutraceuticals and Regulation).
