Speeding innovation for industry
From 10/1/2019 to 10/2/2019
Palais des Congrès, Arles, France
As a fertile source of new natural products and environmental friendly solutions, algae are seen today as renewable resources with high potential to foster sustainable development of the emerging Blue Bioeconomy in Europe.
Today, intensive research and development of innovations and technologies is ongoing for a wide range of valuable, competitive and sustainable algae-based applications in order to expand the algae market.
The European workshop “Alg’in Provence” will highlight novel activities on algae valorisation in Europe with a special focus on R&D and industrial initiatives occurring in the French Mediterranean regions.
It will gather people with knowledge & skills in the field of applied algal biotechnology and their potential in a commercial, industrial context, with an aim to stimulate knowledge exchange and collaborations in industrial blue biotechnologies.
The 2-day workshop will offer 16 interactive oral presentations covering 5 topics:
o Algae biorefineries for added value ingredients
o Blue biomaterials
o Research & innovation
o Circular blue bioeconomy
o Bioeconomy opportunities in the Sud-PACA* region
In addition, all participants will have the opportunity to communicate about their activities during coffee-breaks through poster presentations or exhibitions. Please click on the left button "poster communications and exhibitions" for more information.
