We’re delighted to announce the launch of the Algal Information Network’s website, two weeks ahead of our close out conference in Brussels.


The network is a key output from the EnAlgae project, which officially closes on Tuesday 29th September.  And the website is the first port of call for anyone wishing to access the resource.


“The AIN aims to support the development of the algae sector within Europe by improving cooperation and knowledge across a range of areas, from market forces to research organizations and to policy and decision makers,” said network manager Andrea Salimbeni. “The AIN role will be to develop productive and active initiatives which are able to contribute to scaling up the algae sector across Europe.


“The website will host relevant and important information, news and documents and perhaps most importantly, it will be home to the first public databases of European actors in the algae market, from research centres to industrial end-users, associations and consultancy companies.


“In addition, the AIN website presents the Decision Support Toolset, designed by EnAlgae. This is one of the most advanced IT Tools which is able to provide precise concept studies for a preliminary investigation on the potential benefits of new algae facilities in the NWE region.”


Other players in the algal world have endorsed the network.


“I am delighted to say the also network has the support and backing of EABA,” added Mr Salimbeni.


Membership of the network is totally free and comes with the following benefits:


•              Access to support centres across Europe with regional information desks

•              Access to designated experts in partner countries for support

•              Access into the algae market in each of the North West Europe Regions

•              Host site for the EnAlgae decision support system

•              Open algae database with latest market research and European project results

•              International and national project dissemination from the past 10 years


In the coming weeks and months much more information will be added to the website and further details on the network will also be unveiled at our close out conference. Anyone wishing to attend this event and discover more about the network and our other outputs can register to attend by emailing
