Consortia Building Workshop: EU Funding for the Bio-Based Industries (BBI)
This free to attend event, will give details about the 2019 support from the European Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking and will provide you with the opportunity to:
- Identify and link with new partners across Europe
- Join consortia forming around forthcoming 2019 topics
- Discuss and refine your projects ideas with potential partners
- Gather information on forthcoming 2019 topics
This event is aimed at companies and research organisations that are interested in European Support for Bio-based Industries (BBI) and who wish to work with European counterparts in collaborative research and innovation projects. The morning session will highlight information about the 2019 support from the BBI Joint Undertaking and the afternoon will be highly participative in support of consortia building and proposal development.
Due to limited spaces, we will operate an Expression of Interest scheme: we aim to confirm your space at the event within 10 working days from submission of your details.
The 2019 BBI Annual Work Plan and topic texts can be accessed via https://www.bbi-europe.eu/participate/call-proposals-2019
Who should attend
The event is suitable for anyone with an interest in participating in European projects in the forthcoming 2019 topics under the Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking. The aim is to have a variety of prior experience in European projects represented, ranging from newcomers to coordinating EU projects on a regular basis.
Representatives from industry (small and large), academia, RTOs and other types of organisations with appropriate skills and expertise to address the forthcoming 2019 topics in BBI. Note, the number of spaces available for each type of organisation is limited and industry participation is encouraged in particular.
Delegates from all European Member States are encouraged to attend the event.
The number of spaces is limited and we reserve the right to limit participation to one representative per organisation.
Confirmation of Registration
In order to ensure adequate coverage of expertise, experience, type of organisation and geography, delegates will be selected according to their alignment with the topics covered by the event until all places are allocated.
Please note we will use the email address you provide during registration to send you the results of the selection process and for all communication related to event. Please make sure this is an email account you have frequent access to and/or that the person who would like to attend is informed of our updates (in case different from the one who did the initial registration).
Registration will remain open until 25 April 2019 unless fully booked prior to that date.
During the workshop
You will be assigned a working group based on the information you provide us with during registration. We endeavour to match you with other partners with similar interests in order to get the most value from the collaboration. The working groups are potentially the starting point to a consortium – a REAL consortium. You may swap working groups if you realise that your expertise/interest is more in line with another group/call topic.
