About the conference

Sponsored by the Ocean Frontier Institute, this international conference will bring together researchers from diverse fields, providing opportunities to develop new collaborations and build on existing partnerships.

The conference will consist of a mixture of practical workshops and topical sessions on the topics of:

  • trophic ecology
  • aquaculture
  • biotechnology/bioresources
  • lipid biomarkers
  • And more

There will also be a dedicated poster session on parallel topics and opportunities for casual interactions, including catered lunches, refreshment breaks and evening events.

Three lipids conferences have been held previously: in France in 2018 and online in 2020 and 2021 hosted by Portugal.
