2nd Nordic Algae Symposium 2019 – NAS19

27 February 2019
Oslo, Norway

The 2nd Nordic Algae Symposium 2019 – NAS19 will be held on 27 of February 2019 in Thon Hotel Bristol in Oslo, Norway. NAS was initiated by the University of Turku and the first Symposium took place 31 January 2018 in Helsinki (http://nordaqua.fi/nas18). 

Who will attend?

The Symposium will gather researchers and representatives of relevant industrial sectors from Nordic countries and other European regions working with micro- and macroalgae.


NIBIO - the Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research, Ås, Norway is the main organiser of NAS19. The meeting is organised under the auspices of the NordAqua Nordic Center of Excellence and European Algae Biomass Association (EABA).

Purpose of the Symposium

We want to strengthen the Nordic co-operation on algae related activities and believe that Nordic algae Symposia will serve that purpose. The Symposium will enhance co-operation and facilitate interactions between algae related research teams and industry. Furthermore, the Symposium will promote activities related to algae in the framework of the blue circular bioeconomy, contribute to the green shift and pave the way for new start-up companies.


The day before the NAS19, you are invited to visit NIBIOs microalgae lab, and the recently established pilot photobioreactor room.

Abstract contributions are welcomed from representatives of industry, policy makers, and researchers working in Nordic countries, but also from outside the Nordic boundaries.
