Anew microalgae production and exploitation project by Spanish and Portuguese experts will be implemented by a consortium comprised of nine institutions, including universities, research centers, public and private enterprises in the regions of Algarve and Alentejo in Portugal, and Andalusia, in Spain.

The initiative, called ALGARED+, is framed within the Cross-Border cooperation Programme Spain-Portugal (POCTEP) and seeks to strengthen the cross-border R+D+i system in an emerging sector with great potential for microalgal biotechnology.

Simultaneously, the project aims to increase the critical mass of the research centers, improve the quality of the publications, promote the mobility of researchers and optimize the specific resources and infrastructure of each of the participating entities.

The University of Huelva (UHU) is coordinating this project in collaboration with CTAQUA, IFAPA Centro El Toruño, the University of Córdoba and the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) from the Spanish side. Portugal is represented by the University of the Algarve (UAlg), Necton, the Portuguese Institute for the Sea and the Atmosphere (IPMA) and Sea4US.

Planned project activities include the bioprospecting and setting up of a trans-national collection of new strains of fast-growing microalgae, and the valorization of microalgal biomass for the development of innovative bio-products in the fields of biomedicine and cosmetics.

The project will last two and a half years and will end in December 2019.
