Thanks for attending!


The European Algae Biomass Association (EABA) aims to promote a strong link between science, technology and business in the algae biomass sector. Microalgae cultivation for multiple purposes is very relevant for the algae biomass sector. Fucoxanthin is clearly the next pigment from  algae following the steps of astaxanthin. The webinar aims to bring attention to the topic and provide information from / to the key players in the sector.



The workshop has a compact format with views from different perspectives: Academic as well as company presentations. There is one opening presentation of 40 minutes framing the topic and providing the latest insides. All the participants will have the opportunity to present themselves for 2 minutes. This makes all attendees get to know each other what opens the discussion easier and forms a format of openness and sharing valuable information with others.  There will be minutes or a summary from the webinar with the key conclusions.
