On 2 April, 2020, the Technical Webinar on Valorization of Seaweed was held at EABA.
Turnout was excellent, with approximately 50 participants throughout the day. The subject of cultivation stood out as an important part of valorizing seaweed in the EU. This approach comes with multiple challenges, according to Pi Nyvall Collen of Olmix (figure). JRC, SES and Royal Greenland stated the need for data collection, consumer acceptance and the development of business cases to support further business development and ultimately reach market potential.
