We will have a marquee at the Festival of Plants highlighting the work of algal biotechnology research, and showcasing the exciting range of opportunities algae offer for our future. We will showcase our involvement with EIT Food. Algae are a promising renewable source of nutrients, and hold great potential in helping to address issues of food security given our growing global population. Can we use components from algae as the basis for innovative food products of the future?
To attract a younger audience, we will have algae themed colouring and craft activities.
We will be testing the Futurekitchen Virtual Reality series headsets and surveying alongside as well.
