LiMBAC – Lisbon Microalgae Biotechnology Advanced Course

The Lisbon Microalgae Biotechnology Advanced Course, held on a triennial basis, aims to familiarize participants with advanced concepts of microalgae cultivation, paying special attention to scale-up processes, large scale cultivation and downstream processing.

The course is intended to promote an interdisciplinary approach, presenting lectures hands-on practical sessions covering the whole microalgae value chain, from the cell to the latest market trends.

The event comprises presentations from national and international experts in the area, networking opportunities and practical classes with hands-on experience in culturing microalgae, at lab and pilot plant scale.

This intensive course, includes the opportunity to visit ALGATEC Eco-business Park – the soon-to-be largest microalgae production facility in Europe.

Who should attend?

This advanced course is aimed at MSc, PhD or Post-Docs in the biology, chemistry and biochemical engineering fields with some previous background on microalgae biotechnology. The course is also intended to new and established industry professionals seeking to deepen their knowledge and network with other stakeholders in the field.

Facilities

The course will be held at the ALGATEC - Eco Business Park facilities. The practical sessions will take place in A4F’s laboratories and pilot scale experimental unit.

The LiMBAC programme and visits are aimed to give you the chance of a unique understanding of what real industrial microalgae production is. You'll get to see a wide range of fully functioning state-of-the-art production technologies.

Experienced collaborators will be present at all times to share valuable insights into these processes.

All the presentations and the practical sessions will be in English. A course diploma will be handed to each participant at the end of the course.
