The EUALGAE COST Action “European network for algal-bioproducts”, financed by the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) and supported by the EU Framework Programme Horizon 2020, is coordinated by IMDEA Energy and counts with more than 100 investigators from 25 COST countries and 3 COST International Partner Countries.
The main objective of EUALGAE is the establishment of a European network sharing a common goal: development of an economical feasible model for the commercialization of algae-based bioproducts.
EUALGAE is created to stimulate not only interaction among research groups across Europe but also to foster cooperation between academia and industry. This scientific platform will generate a synergistic approach for utilization of microalgae biomass for sustainable fuels and fine chemical products.
