EU Funding for the Bio-Based Industries Consortia Building Workshop 10th May, 2018 - Glasgow

The Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) is a €3.7 billion 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. Its mission is to contribute to a more resource efficient and sustainable low-carbon economy and to increasing economic growth and employment, in particular in rural areas, by developing sustainable and competitive bio-based industries in Europe, based on advanced biorefineries that source their biomass sustainably.

The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), the H2020 UK National Contact Point (NCP), SusChem UK and Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) are organising an event on 10th May in Glasgow to give details about the 2018 support from the BBI JU.
