The ALGAE4A-B (ALGAE For Aquaculture and Beauty) project seeks to exploit the microalgae diversity, as a source for state-of-the art high-added-value biomolecules relevant for aquaculture and cosmetics.
Microalgae Biomass Production
The diversification of microalgae biomass production towards two independent applications in the project will allow the microalgae industry to gain access to alternative markets in an uncertain, highly competitive and fast changing commercial environment. .
Basic and applied research
The project will combine both basic and applied multidisciplinary research in the fields of –omics technologies, biochemistry and applied biotechnology in order to:
An European Horizon 2020 project
Apart from scientific objectives the ALGAE4A-B will provide a platform for efficient dissemination, transfer of knowledge and training between academic and commercial partners and society.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 691102.
