AlgaEurope Gets Physical

 Seagriculture EU 2024

Organizers expect over 350 algae researchers and industry professionals from more than 45 countries to attend AlgaEurope in person next month.

A​fter two years of online editions, AlgaEurope returns to a physical conference format, taking place from 13–15 December, 2022, in Rome, Italy.

This year the organizers received a record number of 289 abstracts. Based on those abstracts, the conference program was created, embracing the most innovative and relevant algae topics of today.

The Conference Program includes presentations from three outstanding keynote speakers who have made substantial contributions to the development of the algae biomass sector: Alison Smith from the University of Cambridge; Paul G. Falkowski, from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey; and Sammy Boussiba, Managing Director of Microalgae Biotechnology at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.

More than 15 major sessions will be featured with topics including Physiology, Food, Feed, Cosmetics, Bioremediation, Biomaterials, Processing and other categories where algae have become a significant contributor. In the plenary sessions, algae experts from various institutions and companies will share their expertise and insights into the algae industry. There will also be more than 100 poster presentations where attendees can chat with the authors about their projects.

A trade show featuring around 20 industry products and services providers will also take place during the three days of the conference. The companies, including Algalif, SCHOTT, FluidAir and Microphyt, will present their projects, bioreactors, processing mechanisms for algae and much more. (A few tabletops are still available.)

“From the start, I have been convinced of the need for a powerful tool like EABA,” said Jean Paul Cadoret, President, EABA, and Chief Scientific Officer, ALGAMA. “It was, and still is, a question of echoing a growing community with the governing bodies and of promoting knowledge exchanges within this galaxy. What could be better than an annual conference and exhibition, which would be the meeting and fusion place for research, industry, and our national and European institutions? AlgaEurope has established itself as an essential and complementary platform. I will be looking forward to meeting the algae community in Rome!”
