SIG Microalgae

The Special Interest Group, SIG Microalgae is a cross-sectorial and multidisciplinary meeting place for actors with an interest in microalgae. The SIG Microalgae was established by the Industrial Biotech Network Norway (IBNN) in close collaboration with Uni Research in June 2014. In 2016, SIG Microalgae will be managed in collaboration with SINTEF.

The aim of the Special Interest Group for Microalgae is to stimulate to an increased number of industry projects related to the production, processing and application of microalgae.

Its objectives are to strengthen the microalgae sector’s science base and to increase the value creation of the microalgae related industry. Additionally the SIG Microalgae wants to make the sector’s activities and importance for the economy more visible to society in general and decision makers in politics and industry in particular.
