The two-day event will explore the use of seaweed in various applications – such as feed, food, offshore cultivation, investment and business aspects.
According to the organisers, the programme includes six plenary sessions and a panel discussion, providing attendees with a comprehensive overview of the latest developments and opportunities in the seaweed industry. Top speakers from the industry will share their know-how and insights and it will also feature poster presentations where researchers will have the opportunity to present their latest findings to fellow conference delegates.
