Background to Nordic Algae Network
The Nordic Algae Network project was initiated in order to strengthen relationships between Nordic companies working on commercial use of micro and macro algae. The intention is also to develop collaboration between algae companies, researchers and relevant R&D institutions in the Nordic countries. A main focus is on opportunities and problems connected to the development of a viable micro and macro algae industry in the Nordic countries.
The Nordic Algae Network project is running from 2011 to 2013 and consists of 14 companies and 4 key actors from Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark. The key actors who are organizing workshops and conferences within the network are MATÍS in Reykjavik, Norwegian University of Life Science in Ås, Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg and the Danish Technological Institute in Århus.
