Although microalgae comprise an estimated number of 30,000 to 1,000,000 species, few are grown commercially.This natural resource offers great industrial potential, exploiting its chemical composition or biotechnological potentialthrough growth manipulations. At the same time, this complexity can overwhelm enterprises entering this sector due tothe great number of variables affecting economic and environmental viability. The strategic objective of the INTERREGAtlantic Area EnhanceMicroalgae project EAPA_338/2016 (2017-2020) is to create a network of European scientific andindustrial partners to stimulate innovation and competitiveness of the European Atlantic Area in high technology sectorsrelated to microalgae (in particular pharma, food and nutraceuticals). The work program includes an in-depth reviewof the existing Atlantic Area microalgae sector (strengths and weaknesses, level of expertise, industrial developmentopportunities, regulatory and legal frameworks), innovative research activities and innovation transfer from laboratories/research platforms to the industrial sector to promote the emergence of new products, services and processes. TheEnhanceMicroalgae consortium offers a wide range of skills and interests, with strong track records for research,production and exploitation of microalgae throughout the Atlantic Area.
