This workshop aims at creating a community of researchers that study and develop algae as vehicles for sustainable nutrient recycling and water reuse in agriculture. Algae can accumulate large amounts of nutrients, e.g. phosphate or nitrate, from wastewater and at the same time also clean the water, thereby making a game changing difference to the sustainability of human food production.
The workshop consists of a mini-conference on September 6, 2018, and a match-making event on September 7, 2018 which will facilitate creation or development of project consortia.
The Aachen Protein Engineering Symposium (AcES) is a scientific and educational conference which is organized by the ABBt (Aachen Biology and Biotechnology; group of Prof. Schwaneberg) at the RWTH Aachen University. The AcES provides an overview on state-of-the-art methodologies in protein engineering with a focus on enzyme discovery, diversity generation and high-throughput screening.more
Plants are a major resource for sustainable bioeconomy. They provide food, feed, and fiber to a growing world population and ensure the renewable energy supply. In the frame of the 4th BioSC Spotlight, external guests and BioSC members will present their research activities aimed at contributing to sustainable agriculture by securing crop yield and quality while reducing fertilizer and pesticide use. The event will bring together experts of academia and industry in different disciplines, accelerate the identification of fruitful research fields for further collaboration, establish a network to analyze value chains, and explore opportunities for future dissemination activities.more
