EUALGAE is participating in the Workshop “European algae production, with major focus on needs assessment and strategies to bridge the knowledge gaps in production, processing and economic statistics”

Where: Brussels, COST Association facilities
When: 5th and 6th of October 2017
Organization: JRC, FAO, COST Actions Phycomorph and EUALGAE

The workshop “European algae production, with major focus on needs assessment and strategies to bridge the knowledge gaps in production, processing and economic statistics”, that will count with the participation of several experts from the EUALGAE COST Action, aims at bringing together relevant players from the algae data management, production and processing sectors in Europe to discuss effective responses to the previously identified lack of baseline quality data on algae biomass at the European level. This initiative is foreseen to i) target the main knowledge gaps and needs regarding data on algae biomass supply, demands and flows at the European level; ii) discuss the reasons driving the identified gaps and iii) provide recommendations on the ways forward to solve the identified problems. The workshop is also aimed at launching alternative effective tools to integrate reliable knowledge on the sector at the short-term.
