The Final Conference of the EUALGAE COST Action, held last 26-27 February 2019 in the premises of IMDEA Energy in Madrid (Spain), consisted of 2-day sessions of oral presentations and a 1-day Management Committee meeting. The objective was to present the most recent developments in the field of microalgae biotechnology. In addition, the future prospects of this promising biotechnology were discussed on the basis of the main results of the EUALGAE COST Action.

There was a huge interest for participation among the Action members and finally 61 researchers from 21 countries had the opportunity to participate in the event.

A total of 32 oral presentations were made, organized in blocks by the Working Groups and, in addition, two keynote lectures were given by Prof. Avigad Vonshak (Ben-Gurion University, Israel) and Prof. F. Gabriel Acien (University of Almeria, Spain). As a result, a special issue of the journal Algal Research will be published, consisting of a selection of 20 scientific articles that will address the information provided at the EUALGAE Final Conference and the research collaboration that has been carried out during the development of EUALGAE.

This event closes 4 years of EUALGAE COST Action, where more than 180 researchers met and established collaborations between them, 47 STSM were held and a large number of publications and joint proposals were developed.
