The ABC Conference


After three years of successful collaboration, the partners of the FucoSan project are holding their final conference, to share their experience and to offer the opportunity to discuss the potential of bioactive compounds with experts in this field.
During the course of two days, you are invited to present results of scientific research, and product development from algae bioactive compounds. The focus will be on scientific as well as on commercial aspects. We are looking forward to interesting talks and posters to be presented and discussed among experts in the fields of biotechnology, marine research and product development.
