Welcome to the AccliPhot Consortium

AccliPhot is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network funded by the European Commission. The project has started on the 1st October 2012.

The main research aim of AccliPhot is to investigate and understand short-term acclimation mechanisms to changes in light conditions in photosynthetic organisms. We study acclimation processes on various scales with experimental and theoretical methods. The investigated scales encompass the molecular signalling mechanisms inducing the responses, the implications for metabolism, and whole-organism behaviour, in particular growth and biomass yield. Our aim is to employ this understanding to optimise and upscale biotechnological exploitation of photosynthetic microalgae for the production of biofuels and high-value commodities.

Register now for AccliPhot final conference: ENCAPP 2016, 26-29 April 2016, Malta

ENCAPP 2016, the European Networks Conference on Algal and Plant Photosynthesis, is the final open event organised by two Marie Curie Initial training networks: AccliPhot and PHOTO.COMM.

We aim to create a platform for knowledge exchange on the topics that are the research focus of our ITNs. Participants of the conference will have a unique chance to interact within the diverse group of scientists and contribute to the research on algae and plant photosynthesis.
More information and registration can be found under www.encapp2016.eu.


AccliPhot and PHOTO.COMM fellows also organise this years' Young Algaeneers Symposium in Malta (23-25 April 2016)
