The European Algae Biomass Association (EABA) aims to promote a strong link between science, technology and business in the algae biomass sector. Fermentation is a cost-effective way to produce microalgae biomass. lt is very relevant to bring together the main stakeholders for knowledge exchange and cotlaboration and to learn from other industrial fermentation practices.

The workshop has a compact format and will provide
a platform to exchange experiences with industrial fermentation bewteeen users and those interested to learn more about it. 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.
