About ATEC

The Algae Foundation launched the Algae Technology Educational Consortium (ATEC) project, recognizing algal production will provide a sustainable source of biomass for bio-based products, feed, fuel and foods creating high quality jobs for an educated workforce.

ATEC is a partnership between academic institutions, national research laboratories, and industry leaders, the consortium’s goal is to develop novel educational programs to strengthen industry workforce capabilities, by focusing on the skills needed to support the commercialization of algal products. Through algal education, students learn practical applications of farming and biotechnology developing the skills for the next generation of algal-based jobs.
