3rd Nordic Algae Symposium, NAS2020

We are pleased to welcome you to the 3rd Nordic Algae Symposium which will take place on March 4 (2020) in Uppsala, Sweden.

The workshop is jointly arranged by Uppsala University and the Nordforsk funded Center of Excellence NordAqua.

NAS2020 will gather researchers and representatives of relevant industrial sectors from Nordic countries and other European regions working with micro- and macroalgae. With NAS, we want to strengthen the Nordic co-operation on algae related activities 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 help pave the way for new start-up companies. 

The NAS series was initiated by the University of Turku and the first installment took place 2018 in Helsinki. The second symposium was held in March 2019 in Oslo.
