Online Webinar - Bio Based Industries Open Call for proposals 2020
About the Event
Join us to the upcoming webinar about the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking Program open calls for proposals.
The Bio-based Industries Initiative is a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) between the European Commission and the Bio-based Industries Consortium (BIC). The PPP is an instrument to support industrial research and innovation, to overcome the innovation ‘valley of death’, the path from research to the marketplace. It encourages partnership with the private sector to fund and bring together the resources needed to address the challenges involved in commercialising major society-changing new technologies. The industry is organised in a Bio-based Industries Consortium. The Consortium currently brings together more than 60 European large and small companies, clusters and organisations across technology, industry, agriculture and forestry. They have all committed to invest in collaborative research, development and demonstration of bio-based technologies within the PPP.
The Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking had published 16 open calls for proposals, in 4 focus areas: Feedstock, Process, Products, and Market uptake, in a total budget of €102 million.
Feedstock: foster a sustainable biomass supply with increased productivity and building new supply chains.
Biorefineries: optimise efficient processing through R&D and demonstrate their efficiency and economic viability at large-scale demo/flagship biorefineries
Markets, products and policies: develop markets for bio-based products and optimise policy frameworks.
