Horizon 2020: UK Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking Information and Brokerage Webinar
*** You, like us, will be only too aware of the fast-developing situation with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. The safety and wellbeing of our attendees and staff is our priority and, with this in mind, we have decided to move this event from a physical meeting to an online webinar. [Dates and times as above.]
We will work with you and all of our attendees and speakers to ensure that, despite not being face-to-face, we still give you as much opportunity to network and connect as possible. We welcome your feedback as to how the events are working online and how we can improve or increase their reach in these ever-changing circumstances.
Thank you for your understanding.***
This free to attend event, will give details about the 2020 support from the European Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking and will provide you with the opportunity to:
- Identify and link with new partners
- Join consortia forming around forthcoming 2020 topics
- Discuss and refine your projects ideas with potential partners
- Gather information on forthcoming 2020 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 2020 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 2020 BBI Annual Work Plan and topic texts can be accessed via the link here.
Who should attend?
The event is suitable for anyone with an interest in participating in European projects in the forthcoming 2020 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 2020 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.
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.
Should you need any further information and support please do not hesitate to contact us.
