In this context, Adrien is advising the European Commission, being part of the management team of the EU4Algae programme. Adrien is also a senior advisor to the Global Seaweed Coalition, hosted by the UN Global Compact.

Organization info:

The EU4Algae platform was launched by the European Commission in 2022 to help scale up a regenerative, resilient, fair and climate friendly algae industry in Europe, as well as bring more novel algae species to the market.

The platform is a unique space for collaboration among European algae stakeholders, including algae farmers, producers, sellers, consumers, technology developers as well as business-support organisations, investors, public authorities, academia, researchers and NGOs. It also acts as a single information hub on algae funding calls, projects, business-related information, intelligence and best practices.
