The European Algae Biomass Association (EABA) aims to promote a strong link between science, technology and business in the algae biomass sector. Both microalgae and seaweed antivirals will be presented, as well as the ones currently under clinical trials.

It is very relevant to bring together the main stakeholders for knowledge exchange and collaboration and to learn from others.


The workshop has a compact format and will provide a platform to exchange experiences with algae antivirals between 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 a summary from the event with the key conclusions for each panel.
