€102 Million Call for Application announced by the Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking
The seventh Call for proposals has been announced by the Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking with 16 different topics published.
A list of the calls is at the bottom of this article or alternatively visit the BBI website
There is a budget €102 million available for projects working on the faster development of new sustainable value chains, ranging from efficient processing of biomass feedstock supply to bringing bio-based products to the market.
The deadline for applications is the 3 September 2020, 17:00 CET.
About the The Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking
The Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) is a Public-Private Partnership between the EU and the Bio-based Industries Consortium. Operating under Horizon 2020, this EU body is driven by the Vision and Strategic Innovation and Research Agenda (SIRA) developed by the industry.
Where to find more information?
Take a look at the BBI JU 2020 Call booklet for more information on the topics, as well as Call submission and evaluation details.
The BBI JU Virtual Info Day on 22 April 2020 will feature presentations about different aspects of the Call, as well as interactive Q&A sessions with participants. The event will be recorded and available for playback on the Info Day page.
The BBI JU community will also have wide online networking opportunities on the BBI JU Partnering Platform where you can already schedule remote one-to-one meetings for 22 and 23 April and 12 May 2020.
