The European Algae Biomass Association (EABA) aims to promote a strong link between science, technology and business in the algae biomass sector. It is very relevant to bring together the main stakeholders for knowledge exchange and collaboration. 



The workshop has a compact format with a panel-based organization. Each panel has a specific topic and a duration of approximately 1 hour; 20 minutes for the presentation of the topic and 40 minutes for discussion and conclusions. Each panel has a reference topic and the participants in the panel will be volunteers from the participant group. All the participants will have the opportunity to present and ask questions following the workshop format. There will be minutes or summary from the event with the key conclusions for each panel.
