Introducing SPF

The French Phycological Society (SPF) aims to encourage and develop the study of macroalgae and microalgae in metropolitan and overseas France, to facilitate scientific connections at the national and international level, and to ensure the official representation of French phycologists in all scientific connections.

2023 SPF workshop – Sète

On 12 and 13 December 2023, the French Phycological Society held its workshop at the Ifremer station in Sète in the Celimer building, bringing together 42 participants. The scientific programme was wide-ranging, covering microalgae and macroalgae, both freshwater and marine, and encompassing a variety of research disciplines and contexts, from fundamental molecular, cellular and environmental research to applied research. These days are an opportunity for the scientific community to forge and/or consolidate links between generations, laboratories in France, and the various trades. During these days, two student scholarships were awarded (see student profiles below).
