Biobased Consortia Building in Manchester on 3 March

The UK's KTN (Knowledge Transfer Network) is organising a major event on Thursday 3 March to promote the 2016 calls from the Biobased Industries Consortium/ BioBased Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU). This free to attend event will give details about the new call for proposals from the BBI JU that opens in April.

The event is aimed at companies and research organisations that are interested in European Funding for Biobased Industries and who wish to work with European counterparts in collaborative research and innovation projects.  During the morning the event will highlight information about the 2016 call for proposals from the Biobased Industries Consortium including views from industry and an overview of the purpose and objectives of the BBI JU. In the afternoon a highly participative session will support consortia building and proposal development.

Biobased focus
The event will focus in particular on consortia building for the following call topics:
  • BBI 2016.R4 - Flexible biorefining technologies able to handle different feedstock, leading to new value chains or enlarging existing ones by using the same processing plant 
  • BBI 2016.R5 - Advanced biomaterials for smart food packaging
  • BBI 2016.R8 - Emerging technologies for conversion of the organic content of Municipal Solid Waste and improving waste-to-chemicals value chains 
  • BBI 2016.R9 - Exploiting algae and other aquatic biomass for production of molecules for pharma, nutraceutic, food additives and cosmetic applications 
  • BBI 2016.R10 – Industrial biotransformation for the production of bio-based chemicals
Many of the calls topics under the BBI JU require environmental and socio-economic assessments, such as LCA, therefore organisations with recognised strengths in this area are especially welcome to participate in this event.

The event will take place at the Chancellors Hotel (part of the University of Manchester) on the Fallowfields campus in south Manchester, UK.
