The AlgaEurope conference will be transformed from an onsite conference to an online event due to the current developments around the Coronavirus. The online conference will be held on 1-3 December 2020. Due to the ongoing uncertainties around the Coronavirus situation we hope that by going online we can count on your participation in the online event. Shortly we will release the program so stay tuned and save the date! Although algae are widely used in biotechnology and agriculture in Europe and worldwide, and the term algae appears in multiple legal documents, the term as such is poorly defined. Algae are very diverse group of organisms, found almost everywhere on the planet. Based on common use the term algae includes representatives from prokariotes (the cyanobacteria) and from several kingdoms of the eukariotes, whereby no scientific agreement currently exists on the exact taxonomic classification of those multiple eukaryote kingdoms. Every year the European algae scene meets at the AlgaEurope conference. AlgaEurope offers a unique opportunity for an exchange between academia and industry, established in a networking-based environment that will explore sector’s evolution worldwide as well as the main European players. Currently, there are several European projects, from lab scale to demonstration plants and commercial facilities, aiming to accelerate the commercialization of algal products.
