    Youth & Entrepreneurship

    Working group 7 Youth & Entrepreneurship will attract more youth and entrepreneurs into the algae industry​, by creating and sharing an overview of events, support tools, platforms and communities to provide a clear pathway to a career in algae-related industries.

    The following activities and outcomes are foreseen:

    • Map stakeholders and establish contact with relevant youth & entrepreneurship organizations;
    • Develop a social media campaign with business “success stories” and endorsement from target groups;
    • Create and promote an online repository of information & resources;
    • Meet with Business Support Organisations to co-develop algae-related activities and business models; co-design a framework for an algae apprenticeship scheme with relevant companies;
    • Facilitate one workshop and organize a matchmaking event and/or Hackathon;
    • Define follow-up actions to maintain momentum and monitor progress post-project.
