New R&D funding available

The Bio-based Industries (BBI) Consortium, a public-private partnership led by the European Commission, has announced a further €106m of funding available for research and development in the bioeconomy sector. This is part of the €3.6bn euros to be made available up to 2020 (including €1bn from the Commission itself, with the remainder coming from industry). Biorefineries have a specific €12m pot allocated.

A further round of funding calls is also being made by the European Commission's Horizon 2020 programme. This includes €360m  R&D funding for low carbon energy technologies. Information days will be held to explain to potential applicants what the criteria are. More information can be found here
