Funding opportunities for bio-based industrial sector

The Bio-Based Industries (BBI) Joint Undertaking (JU) Information Day is taking place in Brussels on 22 April 2020.

The BBI JU is a €3.7 billion partnership between the EU and the Bio-based Industries Consortium operating under Horizon 2020. The 2020 call is the final call under the partnership with an indicative budget of €87 million.;

The call opens on 15 April and closes on 3 September 2020 and the four strategic orientations are:

  • feedstock
  • process
  • products
  • market uptake

The purpose of the info day on 22 April is to present the 2020 call for proposals and give participants the opportunity to hold pre-arranged face-to-face meetings.

The event also presents a great opportunity to find out in detail what the EU Commission is looking for in the work programme, get information on how to submit a winning bid and to network and engage with potential partners with an ultimate goal of submitting an application to the call.

Find the full agenda and register to attend the info day.

There is an opportunity for a delegation from Ireland and Northern Ireland to travel to Brussels to attend the event and explore further opportunities for collaboration under the BBI JU call, including meeting with other EU partners.
