Situational analysis for new technologies
Ghent University will research sustainable and suitable emerging algal biotechnologies technologies to identify those that are both economically viable and environmentally-friendly. Prof. Johan Albrecht and Elien Vulsteke will conduct the economic research and Prof. Jo Dewulf and Kevin Debevere will research the environmental point of view. Their research will be based around SWOT analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) of the sector. Ghent University has gained the attention and support of the Flemish authorities for this work.
