EnAlgae: an INTERREG IVB North West Strategic Initiative
EnAlgae was a Strategic Initiative of the INTERREG IVB North West Europe programme, with activities taking place between late 2011 to December 2015. It brought together 19 partners and 14 observers across 7 EU Member States with the aim of developing sustainable technologies for algal biomass production and quantifying the scope for commercial algae production for energy and other products in North West Europe.

Panning for Green Gold: Developing the algal bioeconomy
Our documentary is finished and ready for you to view and enjoy.
It charts the work which has been undertaken by EnAlgae over the life of the project, places it in the context of what else is happening across the world and offers a glimpse of where the technologies developed by EnAlgae could develop further in the future.
We'd love to hear your feedback too, and please feel free to share with as many people as you like.
Scientific Staff Member
What’s your main role in within the EnAlgae project?
What were you doing before you joined the project?
I studied agricultural biology, specialising in landscape ecology (ecotoxicology) at the University of Hohenheim (my diploma thesis was entitled ‘Impacts of elevated CO2 concentration and biodiversity on the carbon cycle of a Mediterranean model ecosystem’). After this, I completed a Masters programme in agribusiness to combine the scientific research side with some economic points of view.
What attracted you to the EnAlgae project?
For me, personally, my focus is on sustainability; that’s why I specialised in environmental management. My Masters thesis looked at the development of a CO2-Inventory for Stuttgart airport.
I’m very glad to be a member of the EnAlgae project because I really like to work in an innovative field of research. I’m interested in the developing area of algal biomass production that may, in the end, be a sustainable way of providing bioenergy and mitigate GHG emissions.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not at work?
I really love to travel; I like visiting different places and getting to know new people. I also love to cook for all of my friends.
