 BECOTEPS White Paper - a major result of the project
It will be drafted based on the recommendations from the workshops for coherent European policies in the KBBE area. It will be used in discussions with policy makers, funding organisations and decision makers at national, multinational and EU level, and at the KBBE Conference held by the Commission in 2010. It will be fine-tuned according to the feedbacks. The final BECOTEPS White Paper will be disseminated to the ETPs, national TPs, national research funding organisations (ERA-NET, KBBE-Net), European Commission, European Parliament and the press.

The BECOTEPS White Paper, endorsed by the nine KBBE ETPs, is a strategic document and will contribute to the creation of a strong KBBE in Europe.
