The 1st Nordic Algae Symposium 2018 (NAS18) will be held on the January 31, 2018 in Helsinki (hotel Scandic Simonkenttä), Finland.
The symposium will gather together industrial and academic researchers from Nordic countries who are working with cyanobacteria, micro and macroalgae. Several European industrial algae companies (e.g. Ecoduna, Austria; A4F -algae for future, Portugal; AlgaEnergy, Spain; Subitec, Germany) will also present their ongoing activities.
In the evening the symposium will overlap with 1st Annual meeting of the Nordic Center of Excellence ‘Towards Versatility of Aquatic Production Platforms: Unlocking the Value of Nordic Bioresources’ (NordAqua, funded by NordForsk). The University of Turku is the coordinator of the NordAqua NCoE and the main organizer of NAS18. The symposium is organized under the auspices of the European Algae Biomass Association (EABA).
We believe this symposium will strengthen Nordic cooperation between excellent academic teams working on algae and cyanobacteria, will facilitate interaction with industry, promote the importance of algae in blue circular bioeconomy and will pave the way for commercial applications in the form of new start-up companies.
Registration deadline: January 9, 2018
