Invitation to Algae Symposium

The 2nd Nordic Algae Symposium 2019 – NAS19 27. of February 2019 in Thon Hotel Bristol in Oslo, Norway


Who will attend?

The Symposium will gather researchers and representatives of relevant industrial sectors from Nordic countries and other European regions working with micro- and macroalgae.



NIBIO - the Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research, Ås, Norway with the support of the NordAqua NCoE, is main organiser of NAS19 (see last year’s Symposium ( The meeting is organised under the auspices of the European Algae Biomass Association (EABA).


Purpose of the Symposium

We want to strengthen the Nordic co-operation on algae related activities and believe that Nordic algae symposia will serve that purpose. They will enhance co-operation 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 pave the way for new start-up companies.



The day before the NAS19, you are invited to visit NIBIOs microalgae lab, and the recently established pilot photobioreactor room.

Abstract contributions are welcomed from representatives of industry, policy makers, and researchers working in Nordic countries, but also from outside the Nordic boundaries. Please submit your abstract, up to 200 words, by 25. January 2019 via email to

The most adequate abstracts will be selected for oral presentations, in addition to the invited speakers. Access to the Abstract eBook will be restricted to registered participants and the final Abstract eBook (PDF version) will be available for downloading shortly after the symposium.
