The training programme

Similar courses will 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 specialise in one core theme:

  • Cambridge: Algal physiology and omics
  • Matís: Algal biotechnology and investment opportunities
  • Fraunhofer: Algal production, harvesting, processing and nutraceuticals and regulation

You can choose to register to one, two or all three locations of the training programme. 

Who should apply

The programme will provide an opportunity for postgraduate, postdoctorate and 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. 

Algal Biotechnology Techniques and Opportunities for the Sustainable Bioeconomy

Algae are one of the most promising and emerging trends for the food industry. These microscopic plants can be used for a wide range of food products and sustainable food production pipelines.
