On Tuesday, 22nd January, a day prior to the conference, a limited number of conference delegates will receive a unique opportunity to join an exclusive dual site visit of AlgaEnergy's Plant and the iMiDRA's Experimental Farm.

AlgaEnergy is a biotech-based company exclusively focusing on the research, production, valorization and commercialization of microalgae and derived products. The company collaborates closely with the most reputed universities and research centers, as well as with the European Commission, who has recently selected and is supporting AlgaEnergy as one of the very few SMEs with the highest growth potential in Europe and of strategic importance to the continent.

iMiDRA (Institute for Rural and Agricultural Research and  Development of Madrid) is a prestigious agronomical R&D center. Its main objective is to research in the agri-food sector, also developing support activities, such as the preparation of analyses and field trials. Additionally, the center carries out activities that allow the development of the rural environment and the technological and knowledge transfer at different levels, based on the needs of the agricultural and food sector of the Community of Madrid.

There is no extra charge to attend the site visits, but spaces are strictly limited and allocated to conference delegates on a first come, first served basis, so it is highly recommended to book your place early to avoid disappointment.
