High-added value industrial opportunities for microalgae in the Atlantic Area

Microalgae production for high added value compounds is identified as a business sector with high growth potential in the near future, especially in the Atlantic Area. Whereas scientific knowledge about microalgae production and applications in different areas (nutritional, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, etc.) has steadily developed in the last decades, the industrial exploitation of these advances is far behind. EnhanceMicroAlgae project aims to facilitate the development of industrial and business opportunities in the microalgae sector within the Atlantic regions of Ireland, UK, France, Spain and Portugal. To achieve this goal the analysis of skills, gaps and opportunities, the development of study cases and Decision Support Tools, the incorporation of emerging technologies and the promotion of spin-offs and qualified employment will be undertaken.
