On 28 April 2017, BBI JU will organise its fourth Info Day & Brokerage event in Brussels, following the official launch of the 2017 Call for proposals.
This event will be held in the Charlemagne building of the European Commission, in Brussels.
High-level speakers from the European Commission and from industry will provide an overview of the opportunities in the bioeconomy sector in Europe and shed light on the updated SIRA (Strategic and Innovation Research Agenda). The BBI JU Programme Office will provide potential applicants with detailed information on how to prepare and submit a good proposal for the 2017 BBI JU Call.
There will be a dedicated networking and brokerage event in the afternoon. Participants can schedule meetings during the afternoon using the BBI JU Partnering Platform.
The BBI JU programme office staff will also be on hand to answer individual queries to participants on the BBI JU Call procedures, BBI JU rules and guidance on applying for funding. There will be an opportunity to find out more about the BBI JU founding partners - the Bio-based Industries Consortium and the relevant services from the European Commission. Other organisations will also be available during the event with info booths covering synergies with other programmes and NCPs.
Registration for both the morning and afternoon sessions is free but obligatory.
