ERRIN input paper on a future EU Algae Strategy

ERRIN has published its input paper on a future EU Algae Strategy, highlighting the challenges and opportunities of such a strategy at a regional and local level. 

The paper was prepared by a task force led by ERRIN's Bioeconomy Working Group with contributions from the Blue Growth Working Group as well as the wider membership. Regional examples provided by the membership feature in the paper. 

ERRIN's input addresses:

  • The need for an EU-level strategy to increase coherence and visibility of the sector;
  • A boost to knowledge production and sharing;
  • Multi-level governance and the important role of regional and local innovation ecosystems;
  • A clearer definition of algae in order to coordinate an efficient policy response;
  • Key challenges and opportunities for the sector.
