The BBI JU Programme Office has concluded evaluation of the last call for project proposals. 18 proposals have been selected to receive a total of €104.6 million BBI JU Call 2020 funding. Grant agreements with the successful candidates are expected to be signed by May 2021.

The seventh and the last BBI JU call invited project proposals across 16 different topics, to support faster development of new sustainable value chains, ranging from efficient processing of biomass feedstock supply to bringing bio-based products to the market.

229 proposals were submitted to the Call 2020, for a total requested budget of €1.1 billion. 18 of them have been selected for BBI JU funding: three flagship actions, four demonstration actions, seven research & innovation actions and four coordination & support actions.

The successful applicants and the BBI JU Programme Office will now start preparing grant agreements to be signed by May 2021, for a total amount of €104.6 million. More information about the selected projects will be published after the grant agreement signature.

Independent evaluators selected from Horizon 2020 expert database carried out the evaluation in a fully remote way due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We would like to thank all experts and BBI JU colleagues for their commitment and resilience that lead to successful evaluation results.
