Algal Research for Policy-Making and Biotech (ARPMB) Symposium 2018
Date: 14th May - 18th May 2018
Venue: SAMS, Oban, Scotland
Algal Research for Policy-Making and Biotech (ARPMB) provides an international forum for communicating recent advances in algal research and for promoting the link between science, policy and biotechnology. Addressing both academia and industry, this conference offers a unique opportunity for delegates to exchange information and ideas as part of an interdisciplinary audience.
Given our vision to promote algal research and innovation with emphasis on their applicability in various areas of policy and industry, our aim is to bring together people with this joint event comprising:
- The Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) Algal Microbiome: Friends and Foes (ALFF)
- The Young Algaeneers Symposium (YAS 2018).
- The RCUK Global Challenge Research Fund (GCRF) project GlobalSeaweedSTAR
- The Horizon 2020 Blue growth project GENetic diversity exploitation for Innovative macro-ALGal biorefinery (GENIALG)
In addition to the scientific conference, the ALFF consortium will deliver a course on Biomonitoring and Science communication aimed at policy-makers, and the private sector in the context of algal research and biotechnology.
ARPMB will be organised and hosted by the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) in Oban - a charming town on the west coast of Scotland and gateway to the Scottish Hebridean islands. A location with staggering natural beauty and rich cultural history spanning back to the Mesolithic times.
