Past event: European Algae Industry Summit 2024

The application of algae has been extensively applied throughout numerous industries including food, cosmetics, biofuels, pharma and nutraceutical. The application and cultivation of algae has many benefits ranging from increasing and restoring biodiversity for marina animals by providing habitats, to their use in food and nutrition due to their rich volume of essential vitamins and minerals. As research and technology continue to advance, the uses of algae are likely to expand further offering sustainable solutions to various global challenges.

The 12th European Algae Industry Summit 2024 will take place on the 17th and 18th April 2024 in London. The two-day event will bring together business executives, industry leaders, academics, policymakers and stakeholders from the algae industry. The summit will provide a forum to exchange information, discuss recent developments and examine possibilities as well as challenges currently facing the industry. The 12th European Algae Industry Summit will hold interactive sessions and talks by experts in the field to allow participants to gain valuable insights to the current state of the algae industry as well as collaborative efforts aimed at advancing the sector. The summit will allow for a range of networking opportunities, allowing participants to connect and interact with likeminded professionals to discuss recent developments and examine possibilities with not just algae production and cultivation, but the vast prospects for the application throughout different industry markets.

Site Visit to British Algal Archives

On Tuesday the 16th April 2024, a day prior to the summit a limited number of delegates will receive the unique opportunity to join a behind-the-scenes visit to the Natural History Museum, where we’ll delve into the British Algal Archives.

The Museum’s collection of algae is one of the largest in the world, with more than a quarter of a million specimens from around the globe. This tour is available on invitation basis only and is not open to general public visiting the museum.

Don’t miss your chance to join this experience led by Jo Wilbraham, the Senior Curator responsible for algae collection at the museum. By participating in this exclusive interactive tour you’ll gain insights into the ongoing and upcoming algal research initiatives at the British Museum.

There is no extra charge to attend, but spaces are limited and are allocated to conference delegates on a first-come, first-served basis. Please indicate your interest when registering for the summit.
