AlgEn is a student friendly company, so we always have a number of students doing their research and training in our lab. We host groups of microbiology students as part of their practical education, both in the biotechnology area, but we also like to demonstrate some business aspects of biotechnology.

AlgEn has a strong partner network in business and academia. Many procedures are outsourced to our partners who are better equipped or more streamlined to work in specific areas. AlgEn likes to consider itself as the coordinator and facilitator of activities that form a solution web.
