Although algae are widely used in biotechnology and agriculture in Europe and worldwide, and the term algae appears in multiple legal documents, the term as such is poorly defined. Algae are very diverse group of organisms, found almost everywhere on the planet. Based on common use the term algae includes representatives from prokariotes (the cyanobacteria) and from several kingdoms of the eukariotes, whereby 
no scientific agreement currently exists on the exact taxonomic classification of those multiple
eukaryote kingdoms.


Every year the European algae scene meets at the AlgaEurope conference.  AlgaEurope offers a unique opportunity for an exchange between academia and industry, established in a networking-based environment that will explore sector’s evolution worldwide as well as the main European players. Currently, there are several European projects, from lab scale to demonstration plants and commercial facilities, aiming to accelerate the commercialization of algal products.

Check out all participating companies from last year in Paris.

From the start, I have been convinced of the need for a powerful tool like EABA. 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 to seminars and other workshops devoted to algae. If we combine these professional advantages with the pleasure of meeting our alter ego’s, AlgaEurope is today a must-visit-event, that is why I will be looking forward meeting the algae community from 1-3 December 2020 in Rome!

I have never given up, pushing my idea we meet again this year at AlgaEurope 2020. It is an excellent opportunity to lecture and discuss – face to face with friends and colleagues – about latest achievements, get new ideas and learn about progress of projects. And moreover, the meeting location is ‘città eterna’, my beloved place.

Dear Algologists, I look forward to meeting you in Rome.
