In collaboration with the University of Cambridge, SAMS (Scottish association for Marine Science), Fraunhofer and the Culture Collection of algae & protozoa, Matís offers courses in algae biotechnology. The courses are part of The EIT-food project Algae Biotechnology
The aim of these courses is to provide basic training and education in algae biotechnology. The cultivation of algae, their growth and biotechnology in laboratories and in experimental facilities will be discussed. Participants will get an insight into the world of experience of experts from both an industrial and an entrepreneurial perspective. This can help participants to start or improve their own activities related to algae.
Courses are offered both online and in person and will ensure the development and strengthening of a network for all participants from around the world.
The course is open to anyone with a BA, MSc or PhD degree or significant experience in the aquaculture sector or the food system, especially people from countries within the EU and EIT Food related countries.
