Algal Biotechnology techniques and opportunities for the sustainable bio economy

There has never been a better reason to come to Iceland than right now! Our currency (ISK) is weakening, which means more purchasing power for you, AND Matís is hosting a really interesting and valuable food algal course. The aim of this professional development course is to showcase the opportunities that algae offer the biotechnological industry, including their use for food, feed, nutraceutical, cosmetics, and other applications for bioactive compounds.

The workshop will run for two days, with one day of talks given at the facilities of Matís ohf. in Reykjavík and the second day consisting of a tour of algal companies located in the South-West of Iceland. The programme will provide an unrivalled opportunity for a broad variety of stakeholders from academia, governmental authorities and industry, including students, researchers, managers and entrepreneurs, to interact with each other and obtain a broad and relevant introduction to the opportunities of algal biotechnology.
