We are pleased to welcome you to Ponta Delgada, Azores, Portugal for the 7thCIC at the University of the Azores from July 18th to the 20th of 2022.

This year we intend to address issues ranging from the occurrence of toxins and their mitigation, cyanobacteria, and their toxins in the context of climate change, management of cyanotoxins contaminated waters, the biotechnological applications of cyanotoxins and other metabolites, and the impact of collections of culture in their study.

We look forward to having you at the 7thCIC to be held at the University of the Azores and in its social events with visits to the city of Ponta Delgada and places of interest in São Miguel, such as Lagoa das Furnas and fumaroles.
