What opportunities and challenges do algae offer as the raw material of the future? To discuss this question, the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel invites all project partners and stakeholders from research and industry to the “FucoSan – from Science to Innovation Day 2019” in Kiel. The aim of the international event is an exchange of the research findings so far within the project.

  • challenges and success stories in obtaining algal raw material in sustainable ways
  • results from different fucoidan extraction techniques
  • chemical and biological characteristics of fucoidans
  • applications of fucoidan in various economic fields
  • insights into commercialisation potential related to fucoidans

After the event you will have the opportunity to visit the GEOMAR Technology & Logistics Centre (TLZ) located on the east shore Campus of GEOMAR, Wischhofstraße 1-3, 24148 Kiel.
