Algae have become a multi-billion sector in terms of biotechnology development that is expected to grow rapidly, providing valuable goods and services in multiple applications. In spite of centuries of scientific and commercial interests, the term algae has not taxonomic meaning. In the light of rapidly growing business interests associated with the term algae, a clear, simple definition of algae is not only required, but essential for developing the necessary standards, regulatory and legal issues.
AlgaEurope 2021 is a unique opportunity to learn and understand all about algae production and commercialization and interact with over 350 key players from more than 45 countries.
Within the framework of AlgaEurope 2021 the organizers are pleased to announce the European Union – Young Algaeneers Innovation Award! A jury incorporating international experts from academia and industry will select 3 nominees which offer, according to the jury, the most innovative product, service or invention. In total 3 Innovation Awards will be presented by the jury; Gold, Silver and Bronze. The contest will be open to young people from companies, research institutes and other organizations involved in the Algae Biomass sector in Europe (EU and EEA countries). The deadline for submission of your innovation is November 8th, 2021. The winners will be announced at the European Union – Young Algaeneers Innovation Award ceremony during AlgaEurope 2021.
