Dear Evelina,

I suggest you approach Mr. Sascha Hermus from the 3N Kompetenzzentrum in Germany - they have projects with this topic


you can also contact Mr. Gabriel Acien, Professor, University of Almeria, who gave a very impressive keynote on micro algae potential during the Bioeconomy conference in Helsinki this July:

Also, you can approach Dr Petri Suuronen who is Director of the Blue Bioeconomy programme at the Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke). He also gave a very good presentation on the blue economy (including microalgae) in the same conference:

Good luck! I hope these contacts will help.
