What our participants say...


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 with  presentations and discussion time. 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.
