15 September 2008 - Partnering event FP7 calls on KBBE and Biorefinery
The European Commission published on 3 September 2008 the 3rd call for KBBE and a joint call on Biorefinery. The call has a budget of 57 million Euro targeted at the funding of a limited number of large, multidisciplinary, Collaborative Projects.
As great emphasis is being put on the multidisciplinary nature of the projects which will be funded under this call, four European Technology Platforms SusChem, Plants for the Future, Forest-based sector and Biofuels, active in the four themes covered by the call, hold a joint brokerage and partnering event on Monday 15 September 2008 in Brussels. The aim of the event was to aid the formation of multidisciplinary consortia to submit proposals under the call.
This meeting was organised in conjunction with the European Forum on Industrial Biotechnology (15-17 September).
