Belén Martín Míguez, coordinator of EBB project, together with Maria José Chapela, coordinator of Enhance Microalgae project (both Interreg Atlantic Area), organised the workshop “Fostering development of micro-algal-based industries: legal and practical aspects” which was part of the event Business2Sea that gathers annually stakeholders from the marine realm: public authorities, enterprises, universities, R&D centers, clusters and associations. The workshop had a first part where legal frameworks that can hinder exploitation of micro-algae were considered. In particular, Fiz da Costa, from EBB project offered a talk on Nagoya protocol implementation. In the second part, two representatives from Neoalgae and A4f companies presented their activities and perspectives on those legal frameworks and how they impact their businesses. The audience (which included some other members of EBB project such as Vitor Vasconcelos and Guilherme Scott from CIIMAR) participated in the debate.
